The Srimad-Bhagavatam (9.22.32) mentions that Arjuna married a Manipur princess and had a son named Babhruvahana, who became the adopted son of the Manipuri king.Kaina Koop, a sacred well in Imphal, is one of many wells and ponds found at the enchanting palaces built by King Pakhangba, also known as Kaina.In Imphal there is a temple with Shyam-kunda on one side and Radha-kunda on the other (their meeting point is pictured here). In the temple complex reside Sri Govindaji, Lord Jagannath, and Krishna-Balaram.
