Madhavpur Ghed, Porbandar

The Madhavpur Beach is indeed one of the loveliest sandy beaches you can find in Gujarat. This stunning beach presents a visual that is hard to compare with anything else. Sandy beach with coconut trees lining it is ethereal and transports you to a world of paradise.

The beach has been named after the ruler Madhav Rao. It also has a temple named after the same ruler. Tourists visiting the temple therefore make it a point to visit the beach as well and vice versa. The majestic aura of the temple is too compelling to keep away. There is another Haveli temple nearby that is equally grand and a must visit.

Legend has it that Lord Krishna married Rukmini right here in Madhavpur. This belief is kept alive through the holding of a fair every year. This is held on Chaitra Sud 12th day and a Shrimad Bhagwad discourse by Mahaprabhuji who takes the seat that had been occupied by Shri Vallabhacharya that runs for a week is held concurrently each year, making it a complete trip for those interested in religious discourses and events.

It is the Mer community that conducts this fair each year. This place is special for Hindus in particular as it finds a place of mention in scriptures where the wedding of Lord Krishna has been described. The beach, its tranquility and the magnificence of the temples makes this place a complete package for the tourist looking for peace and inner satisfaction
