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.

    Somyagupta's 4 days trip to Dwarka

    The driver of the trip was very rude .With elderlies ans senior citizen on board and he did not cooperate at all.He used to drop at far off places especially in Somnath where other cab drivers were dropping the passengers at the nearby point but our driver stopped the cab at city parking point. Similar behaviour was observed at other places as well. He refused to stop the car when there was a need for natures call to a kid.

    Rohit's 7 days trip to Dwarka

    We booked a trip to Gujarat (Ahmadabad, Dwarka, Somnath, Diu and Gir) through Aarti tour and travels during the Christmas season. The driver, Mr Pancholi was very polite and courteous for most of the trip and the hotels except for the first night were very cosy and comfortable. The driver also guided us throughout the locations. The agents service was prompt and when we raised the issue that our first night at the hotel wasn't very comfortable, he made sure that we were given better rooms on our return leg stay. Would recommend Daksh at Gir for stay and Krishna Beach resort in Diu. In all a very decent trip at a competitive pricing.

    Mayank's 5 days trip to Dwarka

    Hello Travel Triangle and Diu Holidays, I would like to thank you on behalf of my family for arranging the Gujarat Trip. We all had a good time, and we enjoyed the trip. Wanted to share few feedbacks: 1. All the hotels were good except the one in Somnath (The Heritage). Hotel had some foul smell (sever like), and smell was intolerable in one of the room. Breakfast also was not that great. 2. Irshad (Driver) was good, well behaved, and friendly. But faced problem with car as it broke down couple of times. Once in Somnath, and the second time Just before reaching back Ahemdabad Airport. We were fortunate that car didn't break down at some isolated place. 3. Also, in your iterinary if you can recommend some good restaurants and mention some local delicacies it will be an add-on to your services. Overall it was a good trip, and we came back with some great memories of Gujarat. If someone asks me I'll definitely refer Diu Holidays.

    Ashwini's 9 days trip to Dwarka

    Our experience with the Agent was not so good by the end of the trip. Initially she was good, friendly and helped us. But in the later part of the trip they did not provide information for Jeep Safari advance booking, could not see the Statue of Unity properly, the tickets were almost sold by the time we reached. Statue of Unity closes at 6:00 PM and driver took us there at 4:00 PM. The Agent was rude when asked about the Safari or the Statue of Unity Tickets

    Sugandha's 5 days trip to Dwarka

    For most of the people in our group, it was a first experience with Diu Holidays and Travel Triangle, and we definitely are very happy with it. Some of the points we would like to mention - - We were able to customize the itinerary (before booking).  - We will definitely recommend the driver and the cab we had. His behavior, communication, even recommendation for local food were very well. And he was very considerate too. At the end of the trip, we had a bus to catch. He waited till the time we were all settled in the bus, and only then left. Throughout the trip too, he was always on time, and was very cooperative. - The places we visited, Mandavi, Kutch, and Bhuj are absolutely beautiful. It's perfect for family trips too. People are courteous and friendly and as we were an only-girls group, we especially noted that it's a very safe place too. - Every place in Kutch has its own charm, but the Huts deserve a special mention. Definitely spend at least one night in the huts if you visit Kutch. The people managing these are the most hospitable, and the cleanliness there will surprise you.  Thanks for the amazing trip! :)

    Bengaluru

    Arun's 6 days trip to Dwarka

    The trip was planned 2 months ahead, the driver provided had very less knowledge of the places and he used google maps to commute to places. He was not instructed to go as per itinerary, he was taking us whichever place he knew. The timing of leaving from one place to another was not communicated, we had to inquire the hotel or the local people or the other cab drivers and then decide the onward travel. After complaining about this to the driver, he got offended and purposefully missed few places saying there is nothing there., for eg., we did not reach on time for the kuchch utsav where we had planned for sunset and shopping, because of which he started to blame us we had left late from the hotel. The driver later next day apologized, that was too late... Post the counselling from his owner he behaved properly and took us to all the places as per the itinerary, apart from this he was a very slow driver, from Ahmedabad to Bhuj he took 9 hrs including lunch break. The hotels which they booked were really good, especially the one in Kuchch(Hodka Zeel Resort), we had asked the hotel guy to prepare for us breakfast by 7am, and hot water by 5am, without hesitating he agreed and gave us a very good breakfast. One bad experience we faced was in Diu (Rainbow Resort), the staff was worst than ever, we had booked 2 rooms + extra bed, the people at the reception we not ready to give us extra bed, they were telling that we need to pay then extra bed would be given, later after contacting Amin (our tour co-ordinator) we got the extra bed, later in the evening when we tried to take bath in hot water after playing in the beach, there was no hot water coming from the tap, we were asked to wait for 10 mins, even after 2 hrs we did not get water, had to waste 4 buckets of water, then we were told will get water in the morning. So, we waited in the morning and still we did not get hot water, after complaining to the reception the guy was so adamant to listen to us, and even not ready to change the room. Later by 10am after lot of complaints and phone call we finally got alternate room for taking bath, we had already wasted 3 hrs of our travel time to Gir. Apart from these bad experience the trip was totally good and enjoyed a lot with my family and extended family. My request to Diu Holidays is please try to provide proper drivers who are knowledgeable and who knows the location very well. Since, my Aunt had taken the same itinerary and had traveled before us, they had got a very good driver who instructed and took to most of the places.

    Shubha's 5 days trip to Dwarka

    We had a nice trip to Gujarat during December time. We liked all the arranged services from Aarti Holidays. I am not able to provide the feedback via the link shared by you as it is showing 404 page not found error. So writing in email. Arranged Hotels for Stay were good. Good Driver was provided. Only thing we felt was planning the travel time would have be done better. When we requested for plan, they could have optimized the travel time with in the Gujarat and they could have suggested instead of returning from Ahmadabad again we could have returned from Diu itself as there is a airport. That way we could have saved a day travel back to Ahmadabad again. Otherwise all services were good. Thanks to you and Aarti Holidays for making our trip memorable.
