Shree Dwarkadhish Temple, Dwarka

Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Admire the contemplative atmosphere and ceremonial design of Shree 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.

  • Powerful, energetic temple. The main temple has a shrine approx. 71 m high which is the highlight of Dwarkadhish visible from far away. Lord Krishna temple. It is built out of stone including stone carved pillars. Most visited temple, thus, has a lot of crowd. It has many small temples around.
  • Temple opens early morning. Its better to visit before 10 as it gets hot later. Have a look of temple crossing the bridge located beside temple. Charge -10rs. Its amazing. And the beach! There are camel rides and quad bikes available once you cross the bridge, if you are interested.
