Sightseeing in Dwarka

Sightseeing in Dwarka mainly revolves around visiting various temples all over the town. Visit the Dwarkadish Temple situated on Gomati creek. This temple is originally believed to be built by Vajranabh, the great grandson of Lord Krishna, more than 2500 years ago.

The glorious structure of this temple, it’s exquisitely carved shikhar, and the 84 foot long flag waving on the dome made from 52 yards of multicoloured cloth decorated with the symbols of the sun and moon etc overwhelms the visitor at its very sight. This temple is built up of soft limestone and has a rectangular hall with porches on three sides. The temple has two gateways one is the Swarga Dwar, which means gate to the heavens (from where pilgrims enter the temple premises), and Moksha Dwar that means a gate to liberation, from where pilgrims exit.

Other places to visit are Nageswara Mahadeva Temple, Rukmini Devi Temple, Gopi-Tallava, Bhalka Tirth, and the Sharada Peetha.

After visiting temples you can visit the lighthouse that is situated on the shore of the Arabian Sea. You can only visit the lighthouse between 4 pm to 6 pm with the permission of the attendant. This lighthouse serves as a landmark for sailors till date and boasts of panoramic views. Bear in mind you will not be allowed to take in cameras or phones to this lighthouse.
