Admire the contemplative atmosphere and ceremonial design of Dwarkadhish Temple, an interesting and prominent Hindu place of worship. Tradition has it that Krishna's grandson built the temple, while archeologists have dated the main shrine as far back as 2,000 to 2,200 years ago. Greatly expanded in the ornamental Chalukya style in the 15th or 16th century CE, the temple features five stories and rests on 72 tall pillars. The 78.3 m (256.9 ft) spire dominates the surrounding urban area, and photographs particularly well from the main street of the adjoining market.

  • This temple is owned by one family. They are running good business. However that doesn't decrease the spiritual importance of deity itself. The security levels are not justified to the fame this temple enjoys.
  • Its very beautiful and historic. You should make a point to travel with the local guide to know about the history. Unfortunately no cameras are allowed inside, which aslo makes it more special as its beauty is kept hidden.
