About Dwarkadhish Temple in Dwarka

Dwarkadhish temple is situated in Dwarka in Jamnagar District in the State of Gujarat. The history of Dwarkadhish temple will certainly grapple one’s attention since it is in a way related to Lord Krishna. The temple has been dedicated to the king of Dwarka, which once belonged to Lord Krishna. It also means Jagat Mandir or Nija Mandir. Dwarkadhish temple is believed to be built over Hari Griha, which means it has been built just over Lord Krishna’s residential place. The holy shrine built on 72 pillars which support the 5 storied building. Archaeologists propose the temple to be 2200 years old. It’s believed that Lord Krishna’s grandson, Vajranabha built this temple on the land reclaimed by Lord Krishna from the sea. Dwarka is itself situated on the banks of River Gomti.

Dwarkadhish temple covers an area of 27 by 21 meters with east-west length, 29 meters and 23 meters to north –south width. The tallest peak is 51.8 m in height. It’s built with limestone which is still in its pristine condition. There was some expansion in work when a new ruler put his mark deliberately to be showcased. The temple has two doors, one is Moksha Dwara ( means getting relieved from the cycle of birth and rebirth), and the other is Swarg Dwara (means the door to heaven). This door also takes you to the banks of River Gomti by 56 steps. From the temple itself, one can find the sangam or confluence of River Gomti and the Sea.

Dwarka was built by Vishwakarma who is thought to be a celestial architect and had extraterrestrial origins.  Shree Dwarkadhish temple is one of the four dhams of Hindu pilgrimage. 84 ft. long multi-colored flag prettified with the symbols of Sun and moon waves atop the dome of the temple. It symbolizes that Lord Krishna will remain until this Sun and Moon exists. The black color of the idol is so appealing to the devotees that they feel the real lord being present at the shrine. Lord Krishna was known for his affection towards friends from opposite gender better known as Gopis. Today, women still imagine similar tall, black and handsome man in their life too. While your trip to this temple is on, you can have a variety of snacks as food to help energize your body. Thousands of delicious cuisines known for their tastiest delight will make you feel like heaven on earth. Generally, the place is ever enchanting throughout the year but the best time to visit Dwarkadhish temple is between September and March when the temperature remains below 20 degrees centigrade. Being a coastal city of India, Dwarka receives heavy rainfall. Winter season is not so much chilly as temperature soars somewhere in between 9 - 34-degree centigrade.

Stay in Dwarka is very affordable for all. This place has been developed in such a way it that should not look like affordable for rich people only. There are few dharamshala also which offer stays on a donation basis. The opening of Shree Dwarkadhish temple is at 6.30 a.m. This is the very time when Mangal Aarti is done. It closes at 1 pm in the afternoon and is being reopened again at 5 pm and finally closes at 9.30 pm. In the meantime viewing of the rituals is closed for a gap of 15-20 minutes when Lord Krishna is offered Bhog or his favorite offerings. You can inculcate all the detailed information from the web in order to make the trip in a much more organized way.
