Dwarkadhish Temple, Dwarka
(4.6/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Admire the contemplative atmosphere and ceremonial design of Dwarkadhish Temple, an interesting and prominent Hindu place of worship. Tradition has it that Krishna's grandson built the temple, while archeologists have dated the main shrine as far back as 2,000 to 2,200 years ago. Greatly expanded in the ornamental Chalukya style in the 15th or 16th century CE, the temple features five stories and rests on 72 tall pillars. The 78.3 m (256.9 ft) spire dominates the surrounding urban area, and photographs particularly well from the main street of the adjoining market. Put Dwarkadhish Temple into our Dwarka trip itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Dwarka needs no introduction; this sacred city of Lord Krishna has unspoiled charm that draws a large number of Hindu devotees all year long. One of the four Dhams in India (Hindu Pilgrimage Destinations), Dwarka is nestled in the lap of Gujarat, offering divinity and abundant peace to everyone who visits it. Amongst the most important places to visit in Dwarka, Dwarkadhish Temple is a five-storied shrine believed to had been constructed 1400 years ago. Other than this, you would love to see Bet Dwarka, Okha (30kms from Dwarka) and different temples dedicated to Rukmini (Lord Krishna’s Wife), Mirabai, Narsinh Mehta and Shank Narayan.
  • Super temple for Krishna lovers. Devaki maiya looks at Krishna all the time as she did not see him for 10 long years after giving birth. It is said that Krishna shows All that happend in the separated years. Devaki sanctum is right in front of Krishna. Hare Krishna !
