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.
