Lord Krishna in Mahabharata

Hindu mythology is full of interesting stories, which sometimes seem too real to be fiction. All the weaponry, technology and architecture described in two major epics-Ramayana and Mahabharata are now being turned into reality by modern science. 
Lord Krishna is the pivotal character in Mahabharata who makes shrewd strategies for Pandavas to win the Kurukshetra war. Today, we tell you how old was he when the war was fought.
According to Matsya Purana, Lord Krishna was 89 years old when Mahabharata war was fought. The Mausala Parva of the Mahabharata says that Krishna died 36 years after the war, which adds up to 125 years.

It is described in Bhagvad Gita, as Lord Brahma addresses Krishna "O Supreme Personality, Oh my Lord, You have descended into the Yadu dynasty, and thus You have spent one hundred twenty-five autumns with Your devotees."
Hence it can be inferred that Lord Krishna lived to be around 125 years.
