Bala Krishna literally meaning Child Krishna and sometimes translated to "Divine Child Krishna", is historically one of the early forms of worship in Krishnaism. As per Hindu mythology, It is believed that Putana, a huge monster, was killed when the baby Krishna sucked her life from her by taking the poisoned breast she offered him.

Bala-Krishna is often depicted as a small child crawling on his hands and knees as can be seen in the idol inside the cradle.
