About Janmashtami in Dwarka

The Dwarka city or Dwarkadhish was established by Lord Krishna himself with help of his elder brother Balram. The city also is known by the name of Golden city. The Dwarakadhish temple is the point of attraction in the place as its Lord Krishna's temple. A celebration of Janmashtami is worth watching in the city due to the true devotion of the Dwarka’s culture to Lord Krishna. Janmashtami in Dwarka brings the most pleasant time in the city as it full of joy and happiness.

On the day of Janmashtami till midnight the streets of the city are decorated with lights and flowers to welcome Lord Krishna. There is no sign of dark as the whole city is waiting for their maker to born as midnight. The Dwarkadhish temple is the main place of celebration and Lord Krishna's birthday celebrations over there by all the inhabitants and visitors. Local markets are open until the midnight in case you wanna buy anything on the festival night.

The Janmashtami in Dwarka is not only about the worship there are other activities too that will make you the fan of the place. In the daytime all the boys by making different teams compete in a game which is called the ‘Dahi Handi’. At night during the celebration, there is a Shayan Arti perform by the Temple’s priest at the Dwarkadhish Temple.

    Vidya's 5 days trip to Dwarka

    It was a fantastic experience to see all the tourist attractions in Ahmedabad , pilgrimage centers of Dwarka and Somnath , Devaliya Park Safari in Gir. Our Driver Mr. Kan Singh was very helpful and resourceful. He took us to all the places as per our wish and helped us in covering all the attractio
    ns we had planned to visit. He also helped us in tasting variety of Gujarat cuisines / Thali / namkeens / sweets , by identifying the right restaurants enroute. Hotels were good . We especially liked "Lords Inn" in Somnath and they had good standards for Quality and hygiene. Room size was big . They even packed us complete breakfast and juice at 6:30am , as we had an early morning Safari by 8:00am at Gir. Grand Dwarka was not maintained well. AC's were not working and hence the floor was all wet/ humid. I didn't feel the 3 Star standard or quality in that Hotel. Nevertheless it was closeby to Dwarkadheesh Temple ( walkable distance).

    Raosureshs's 8 days trip to Dwarka

    It was a good experience. However there was too much travel on road. Out of 8 days, 2 full days were spent traveling. It was quite tiring. Better planning of longer stay in hotels rather than checking out within 1 or 2 days would have helped. There was hardly any time spent in the resort. Gir Jung
    le safari and stay in Tent City Narmada was awesome. Great experience.
