Lord Krishna has many wifes excluding Radha or Rukumini (i assume both are same), this question says about what happens to Radha after Lord Krishna. but What happened to other wives of Lord Krishna after he left?


Only very few scholars think that Radha and Rukmani are same. Most of the scriptures say that they were different.

What happened to Rukmiṇī and other major wives of lord Krishna after he left?

SB 11.31.20:

rāma-patnyaś ca tad-deham

 upaguhyāgnim āviśan

vasudeva-patnyas tad-gātraṁ

 pradyumnādīn hareḥ snuṣāḥ

kṛṣṇa-patnyo ’viśann agniṁ

 rukmiṇy-ādyās tad-ātmikāḥ

The wives of Lord Balarāma also entered the fire and embraced His body, and Vasudeva’s wives entered his fire and embraced his body. The daughters-in-law of Lord Hari entered the funeral fires of their respective husbands, headed by Pradyumna. And Rukmiṇī and the other wives of Lord Kṛṣṇa — whose hearts were completely absorbed in Him — entered His fire.

Other survivors of the Yadu dynasty — the women, children and old men

SB 11.31.25:

strī-bāla-vṛddhān ādāya

 hata-śeṣān dhanañjayaḥ

indraprasthaṁ samāveśya

 vajraṁ tatrābhyaṣecayat

Arjuna took the survivors of the Yadu dynasty — the women, children and old men — to Indraprastha. He installed Vajra (the son of Aniruddha) as ruler of the Yadus.
