History of Dwarka

Lord Krishna ordered Vishwakarma to build Dwarka. Dwarka was planned and built on the banks of Gomati River. The town had six organized sectors, like residential and commercial zones, wide roads, plazas, palaces etc and Sudharma Sabha hall was built to hold public meetings. It is said that the town initially had 700,000 palaces made of gold, silver and precious stones accompanied with beautiful gardens filled with flowers of all seasons and beautiful lakes.

About 36 years after the Mahabharata War (3138 BC), Lord Krishna left the earth for Vaikunta according to Vishnu Purana. After Lord Krishna left the earth Dwarka was submerged into the sea.
