Derived from the Sanskrit word 'dvar', meaning door, Dwarka is one of the most revered places in India. An intriguing tale shrouds this mystic haven- it is believed that due to damage and destruction by the sea, Dvaraka submerged six times and the present city is the seventh to be built. Bestowed with a strong mythological presence as the earthly kingdom of Lord Krishna, the historical fragments of the era are still alive in the busy streets of the town. This refuge for spiritual seekers is also an architectural delight with its ancient, adorned temples. The beautiful Dwarakadhish Temple is supported by two gateways - Swarga Dwar, where pilgrims enter, and Moksha Dwar, where pilgrims exit. The temple offers an exalting view of the River Gomati flowing towards the sea. Prisinte, peaceful and historically eniticing, Dwarka is spellbinding.
