Devbhumi Dwarka Tourism

Devbhumi Dwarka is an ancient place located on the bank of River Gomti in the state of Gujarat of Western India. The place is considered as Devbhumi (place of God) because according to Hindu mythology or the epic story of Mahabharata, Dwarka was the kingdom of Lord Krishna, thus making it one of the most visited pilgrimage site of the Hindus. It is also one of the ‘Char Dhams’ (four holy hindu pilgrimage sites). The ancient Dwarkadhish Temple is the major attraction of the place. The temple is ornamented with marvellous architecture. The main shrine holds the black marvel deity of Lord Krishna. It has gone through numerous attacks by the foreign plunderers from the ancient days. Later it was rebuilt in the 16th century. Nageshswar Jyotirlinga Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is another important Hindu pilgrimage site in Dwarka.

Dwarka also has several historical significances. Archaeological excavations on the seaward sides of Dwarka have brought light on a submerged settlement with a large stone built jetty which bears testimony to the fact that Dwarka flourished as a port in 3rd to 13th century BC. The Dwarka beach and lighthouse gives a hypnotic view of the Arabian Sea. According to legend, Bet Dwarka, an island in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Dwarka is the orginal home of Lord Krishna.
