Krishna was a devoted person to his friends, people and family. After knowing the truth about himself (being God with a Divine mission), he became devastated and silently stood up and walked towards Govardhan mountain. He stood at the peak of the mountain and looked towards the sky and the setting sun. It was the time when he felt some energy entering in his body. At that time he got to know about him being a God and his purpose of this incarnation. He stood there for a couple of hours and felt the ongoing change inside of him.
When he came down the mountain, he was totally a changed person. The naughty and mischievous cowboy was left behind. He was feeling an abode of tranquility inside of him. His mind was completely blissful. When he came down, everyone was vowing down to him in respect. Even his friends with whom he used to play and cow graze. Everyone who was watching him bowed his head down in respect to him.
Krishna knew that his time of living in Vrindavan is over and now he has to go from here. But before going, he organized a raas-leela with all the people. He wanted to dance with all the people of Vrindavan for one last time. Krishna danced, sang, played flute for one last time in the raas leela. Everyone knew he is going from Vrindavan.
Krishna knew of how Radha was feeling at that time. He went to her and took her in her arms. He took out the flute from his hips and handed it over to Radha and said O Radhe, this flute belongs to you. I used to play this flute only for you and will never play it again. After saying this Krishna left Vrindavan. From that day onwards, Krishna never played the flute again in his lifetime and never returned Vrindavan.
After Lord Krishna moved to Mathura to slay Kamsa, residents of Vrindavana were sad and thought only about Lord Krishna and no one else within their life. Lord Krishna was only twelve years old when he slayed Kamsa. After slaying Kamsa he went to hermitage of Sandipani Muni to learn about Vedas and scriptures where he made friends like Sudama. After some months of studying, Lord Krishna completed his education and returns to Mathura where he is busy combatting against mighty army of one wicked king Jarasandha of Magadh. He wins with Jarasandha each time but finally to keep his public away from his fear and trouble Lord Krishna decided to make Dwarka his capital city. Lord Vishwakarma is given chance to construct Dwarka. He makes beautiful palaces and fountains and houses within this new kingdom of Dwarka and it's even more beautiful than heaven. Lord Krishna shifts with his family to Dwarka. Shortly after there is swayamwara of royal maiden Rukmini who is mentioned to be Goddess Sri within many Mahabharata. She writes letter to Lord Krishna and pleads him to rescue her from wicked Shishupal. That mighty Lord Krishna on her swayamwara day, swipes Rukmini into his chariot infront of Shishupala and her other suitors and also after punishing her brother Rukmi, they go to Dwarka where Lord Krishna marries his lady Rukmini who becomes chief queen of Dwarka.
.......... KRISHNA IN DWARKA

Not many are aware of the Bhalka Teerth region, where Krishna left his mortal body,
The Bhalka Teerth region near Somnath in Gujarat is one of the holiest sites associated with Shri Krishna. one day, when Krishna rested under a banyan tree, he was mistakenly shot in the foot by a hunter named Jara. This site is known as the Bhalka Teerth. It is about 250 kilometres from Dwaraka, near the famous Somnath Temple. After getting shot in the foot, Krishna limped to a cave on the banks of the river Hiranya. He breathed his last near the confluence of the Triveni Sangam (confluence of the rivers Hiranya, Kapila and Saraswati) and left for Nija Dham (heavenly abode). Krishna's cremation is believed to have taken place here, which is now known as Dehotsarg. There's a temple dedicated to Shri Krishna at the Bhalka Teerth site, and people perform Tarpana at the Triveni Sangam (to pay homage to their ancestors).
