Dwarka Nagariâ€“ A Kingdom of Lord Shri Krishnaâ€¦
Lord Krishna had been about 3000 BC. He was born and brought up in Gokul & Mathura (located in Utter Pradesh state of India), but afterward he had been shifted to western area and established new kingdom called “Dwarka Nagari” and ruled successfully years and years.
Dwarka Nagari is located in coastal area of Gujarat state of India. It is said that during Shri Krishna’s tenure, people of Dwarika Nagari was so prosperous, it was constructed in gold and as time passed it was sunk under water due to natural calamity like Tsunami and earthquake.
Present temple of Lord Krishna was built in 200 BC and it is said that was originally built by grandson of Lord Krishna, expanded during 15th century. The temple is known as “Dwarkadhish” temple. “Dwarkadhish” means king of Dwarka. Dwarkadhish Temple is one of famous pilgrimage place of Hindu.
Other than Dwarkadhish temple, Gomati river ghat, Rukmani temple, Nageshwar temple, Gopi Talav are also worth visit place in Dwarka. We often visit Dwarka as it is only 150 km away from my home town. Now Gomati river bank and sea shore is well developed by Reliance Industries Group. One should must visit this place when you plan tour to Gujarat state of India.
