Yashoda and Nand brought up Krishna and Balram.Even Mother Rohini was with them.

Did Nand and Yashoda have sons other than Krishna!?

Wikipedia says they had a daughter of their own known as Ekananga.(From which Puran?)

So who looked after Nand and Yashoda when Krishna was residing at Dwarka?Who succeeded Nand as Gokul Chief?Why will Krishna neglect those who nurtured him with great care and how will Nand and Yashoda forget their loving Kid!?

We have accounts of Vasudev and his women reaching heaven after Krishna and Balram left their mortal bodies.What about King Nand and his wife!?Any details mentioned?

One more,where did Rohini stay after Kamsa's Death!? In DBSK they didn't show Rohini Devi in Dwarka.Confused

1. No, Nanda and Yashoda had only YOgamaya Devi, who vanished after she threatened Kamsa.
2. When Krishna was at Dwaraka, no doubt, his several friends would have looked after Nanda and Yashoda!! You forgot about them?
3. They were avataras of the vasus Drona and Dharaa. SO they regained their original form (vasus are servants of Vishnu).
4. Yes Rohini Devi stayed in Dwaraka. Acc to some versions in the last years, all the gopas and gopikas too came to Dwaraka. But it is not in SB.

In the Mahabharata, Mausala Parva, Rohini Devi is described as committing sati after Vasudev's death following Arjun's arrival.

But I too wonder - once Krishna & the yadavas left Mathura for Dwarka, did Nand & Yashoda also leave w/ them?  Or did they remain in Vrindavan?

Also, under which kingdom did Mathura, Gokul, Vrindavan etc fall under after the departure of Krishna?  Panchala?  Indraprastha?  Chedi?  Any other?  How was it available for Vajra to go to after Arjun brought them all back from Dwarka?

Vrish, most probably it came under Magadha. But after Jarasandha's death, maybe Sahadeva would have allowed the Yadavas to re-include it in their kingdom...

But it was nowhere near Magadha.  Yeah, it might have been a part of an area that owed allegance to Jarasandha once the Yadavas had left, but there were several kingdoms b/w Magadha & Mathura - Kashi, Ayodhya, Pratisthana, Karusa, Chedi, Panchala, Hastinapur.

It wouldn't have returned to Pandava hands until after the Kurukshetra war.
