Where to stay in Dwarka

As a major point of Hindu pilgrimage, you'll find a number of accommodations located close to the main temple in Dwarka. With the city built only on a small scale, you won't have too many problems accessing the main sites, regardless of where you stay in town. By the same token, however, places in the city can fill up very quickly, particularly during August and September when a range of festivities are held. Hotels go from mid-range to basic, and you'll also find some dormitory-style lodging in town.

  • Wonderful place. કુદરતી અને નયનરમણ્ય જગ્યા, નાગેશવન, ગોપીતળાવ જેવા સુંદર સ્થળ નજીકમાં છે.
  • You would love to sit here after sunset. The lord shiva statue and temple looks fabulous at night decorated by lights.
  • One of the 12 jyotirlinga temples. I love it. I want to see this place.
  • Nageshwar Temple is one of the Jyotirlinga, Nageshwar was believed to be known as 'Darukavana', which is an ancient epic name of a forest in India. Below are two well-known legends attached to this mystical temple, A 25 meter tall statue of a sitting Lord Shiva and a large garden with a pond are major attractions of this rather serene place.
