Bhojakata, Indian Ancient City
Bhojakata is a city near the Narmada River.
 Bhojakata is a city near the Narmada River. Bhojakata is founded by Rukmin, a Yadav king after his defeat by Krishna, as he had vowed never to return to Kundani but as victor.

There is a legend behind the discovery of Bhojakata city. As per the legend, Rukmin`s sister got married to Vasudeva Krishna without his will. Rukmin chased Krishna and pledged that he will not return to his capital without Rukmini. But he was defeated by Krishna`s army. So to keep his promise, Rukmi constructed another capital for Vidarbha, to the west of Kundinapuri called Bhojakata. Since then he started ruling from this new capital and never returned to Kundinapuri.
