Unseen by Their opponent or his followers, O King, those two most exalted Yadus returned to Their city of Dvaraka, which had the ocean as a protective moat.


SB 10.52.14
so ’pi dagdhav iti mrsa
 manvano bala-kesavau
balam akrsya su-mahan
 magadhan magadho yayau

Jarasandha, moreover, mistakenly thought that Balarama and Kesava had burned to death in the fire. Thus he withdrew his vast military force and returned to the Magadha kingdom.

 raivato raivatim sutam
brahmana coditah pradad
 balayeti puroditam

Translation:
As ordered by Lord Brahma, Raivata, the opulent ruler of Anarta, gave Lord Balarama his daughter Raivati in marriage. This has already been discussed.

Purport:
The topic of Lord Krsna’s marriage to Rukmini will now be discussed. By way of introduction, a brief mention is made of His brother Baladeva’s marriage. This marriage was alluded to in the Ninth Canto of the Bhagavatam, Third Chapter, texts 33-36.
