Dwarkadhish Temple, Dwarka

(700+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
