Dwarka was affected by Gandhari’s curse:

Remember Gandhari, the mother of Kauravas who were defeated by their own cousin brothers pandavas.

After the battle of Mahabharata, when all kauravas died the throne of Hastinapur was given to Dharmraj Yudhishthir; the eldest of all.

In this Gandhari cursed Shree Krishna, that his people (the yadavas) of Dwarka will come to an end, in the similar way kauravas ended.

She cursed that people of dwarka will be prone of untreatable malady and will kill each other. In the reply of this, Shree Krishna said “I was waiting for this only mother”.

After a few years, the curse came into action and yadavas ended by themselves.

Death of Lord Krishna:

Finding it bad and unhappy, Lord Krishna left dwarka. One day he was sitting under a tree playing flute.

A hunter was passing from there. Listening the flute, he thought some peacock is chirping. Far away he saw Lord Krishna, due to reflection he thought some bird is there and shot the arrow.

Finding it Lord Krishna, he started crying and regretting. In a soft tone Lord said, “There is no fault of yours, all was predecided”. Although Lord Krishna was God himself, but his physical appearance was mortal, which was of a human.

After that Lord Krishna returned to his place, the heavenly abode of Vaikuntha.
