The legends signify the establishment of one of the 12 Jyotirlingas here at Dwarka henceforth which the place has been celebrated as one of the biggest pilgrimage sites in the country.

Tourism in Dwarka unfolds the many religious significance that has been attached to the name itself.

According to the mythologies, many believe that the city was once submerged under the water due to certain mishaps. However, recent excavations have given thorough evidence of its validity.

    • Trip to Dwarka

      Ahmedabad-Gir-Somnath-Dwarka-Ahmedabad with pitstops en route at Jungadh-Porbandar-Jamnagar - December '18 . This was our second trip through Travel Triangle. In 2017, we had been on a tour to Kerala which, though a last minute rush job, was hectic but well organised. Eshant Yadav from TT & Lijo George from the Tour Club kept in touch during the entire planning & were polite and informative. The entire trip was enjoyable & special mention must be made of Joy, the cab driver. He knew the routes thoroughly, was a good guide and made optimum use of the available time. The hotels & the food met our expectations, though The Breeze (a new hotel) was actually at Anachal & not in Munnar town. Tiger’s Roare at Thekkady was very close to the main gate of the Periyar Reserve. The Paloma at Kainakary was excellent, though a little away from Alleppey town and the complimentary boat ride, in the evening, was a treat ! The high point of our trip was a 6 hour day trip on a houseboat on the Alleppey backwaters. The vegetarian fare on the houseboat was customised at our request & really good. An 8/10 for the whole tour. Based on the earlier experience, we went with Travel Triangle once again for our Gujarat trip (Ahmedabad-Gir-Somnath-Dwarka) but, this time, it was a bit of a let-down. First off, Shreya Malviya of TT – either she didn’t exist or she was a ghost. Not once did we receive a call from her. Between 22 Nov & 13 Dec, we made 3 calls to her, only to listen to hold music or get a busy signal. We also felt that Mr. Amin from Diu Holidays, whose quote we finally accepted, could do with a softer approach & be less aggressive while speaking to customers. On the plus side, the hotels were quite comfortable – Sukhsagar at Gir, Sun Plaza at Somnath & the Goverdhan Greens ( 5 kms away from Dwarka town) lived up to our expectations. The food was quite good too. Special mention - the breakfast & dinner buffet at Sukhsagar, breakfast buffet at Goverdhan Greens. The only issue we had was the lack of hot water for a bath at the Sukhsagar. Being winter, that’s the least we had expected. Another plus was Mushtaq, the cab driver. A polite & well-behaved person, knew the routes thoroughly and drove safely, keeping well within the speed limits. As for the trip, given the distances involved, the itinerary could have been better planned. On the last leg, from Dwarka to Ahmedabad, at Jamnagar, we missed out on the Lakhota lake & museum, the Bal Hanuman temple & barely managed to visit Sabarmati Ashram at Ahmedabad, (we reached there at 6.10 p.m, the Ashram closes at 6.30 p.m.) totally missed out on the Akshardham temple & the Adalaj stepwell. We did Akshardham & Adalaj on our own the next day. All said, this time around, we would give the whole trip a 5/10. Travel Triangle, you need to step up your game, if you want to retain customers. Online doesn’t mean going anonymous or being invisible.

      Our trip to Gujarat was a really memorable one. The travel agent Amin from Diu Holidays was really cooperative and patient enough to accommodate the customization that we asked for. The hotels allotted were really good, especially Dharani Village Resort in Kutch and Regenta Inn in Dwarka. The rooms in all hotels were well maintained and the staff was very friendly. The cab driver Asraf was also very friendly. Overall, a great trip. White Rann of Kutch, Dwarka and Somnath

      Trip was good. Hotels were good. Amin was approachable and he could arrange last minute request for transport for our trip. Hotel Palms at DIU was good Cygnet INN at DWARKA and Grand DAKSH at SOmnath were very good, though service time was a bit more but thats ok.

      It was a good experience. Hotels at Dwarka Somnath and Ahmedabad were good. Mr.Amin Mansuri helped us everytime we had a query or requested a change. A little disappointed with the driver of the car. Slightly temperamental and was not a good guide . A.C in the car not working well so afternoon travel became a little tiresome. Happy with arrangements made by Mr.Amin and initial information from travel triangle. Thank you very much. Great darshan at Dwarka Somnath. The temple the ocean at the back soothes the mind . Adalaj vaav a real treat to the eyes. Thanks

      bait inn and heritage were best. However Sukhsagar was worse as no proper basic things like hot water/ intercom / TV and basic response was poor. Grand Dwarka was very good.however initially wrong billing by restaurant.... but corrected after checking by me. Driver was the best and highly polite and respectful. but cab was little noisy chattering of glasses. overall very nice experience.and already recommended to my friends. Lothal and Gir jungle safari was highest memorable.
