If the cosmic forces, heaven, divine and a belief in some supreme force lures you every now and often, you’ve got to the best of all places. Jamnagar is studded with many religious attractions and you certainly have a field day on the cards when you visit:


  • Bala Hanuman Temple

One step inside the precincts of this temple by the banks of Ranmal Lake and you lose yourself to the aura of divinity here. With the continuous chanting of Ram Dhun (the popular devotional Hindi song, Sri Ram, Jai Ram, Jai Jai Ram) since August 1, 1964, it has carved a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.


Evenings are the best time to visit the temple, as regular prayers take hues of a mesmerising ritual with evening aarti.        


Address: Near Lakhota Lake

  • Dwarakadhish Temple


This is one of the most revered of all temples for the devotees of Lord Krishna. Devotees from all across the world throng the premises that worships the deity as the King of Dwarka. The original temple is believed to have been built by Lord Krishna’s nephew, Vajranbhji in 400 BC. The structure, as it stands today, was built in 16th century and is a breathtaking site that seems to be rising from the frosty waters of the Arabian Sea. The black idol of the deity inside the premises has got an intensity that’s rare. You can’t do much but bow in reverence as the fervour here is too overwhelming to be shaken off.

  • Vardhaman Shah Temple

Surrounded by 52 deris (small temples), Vardhman Shah Temple is one of the major prayer points for Jains. Nevertheless, people from all religions come in hordes to partake in the bliss that surrounds this temple. Starting in 1612, it took eight years for the completion of this monumental structure and the effort is quite evident in the ornate carvings and murals on the interiors.

  • Shantinath Mandir

Built with the aim of propagating Jainism, Shantinath Mandir is a major attraction for the followers of all religions and beliefs. It’s dedicated to the 16th Jain tirthankara (saint), Shantinath, and has its insides painted with scenes from the life and times of saints. A thousand rainbows seem to have sprouted all over the temple walls that are a stunning canvas of drawings.
