Needless of any introduction, Dwarkadhish aka Jagat Mandir aka Trilok Sundar is an important mythological base for the devotees of Shri Krishna. Nestled between the calm coastal and bustling Dwarka city, Dwarkadhish is the perfect place to let your hair down and revitalize our sole and spirits. The literal of Dwarka signifies ‘Gate to Liberation’- ‘Dwara’ meaning door and ‘ka’ implying eternal happiness. Like Jagannath temple, Dwarkadhish too is considered as one of the four Dham (divine abodes) in India, and even a Sapt Puris, according to Hindu religious beliefs. Dwarkadhish take pride that it was once the capital of Lord Krishna. And locals even say that the original structure of the temple was commissioned by the great grandson of Lord Krishna, Vajranabhji. The main idol of the temple is carved out of a black marble and is adorned with Kaustubh Mani, and a garland, which was gifted by Goddess Lakshmi. One hand of the idol has a Sudarshana Chakra, while the other has a conch shell.
The temple has grand Chalukya style architecture, made of soft limestone and granite. Every nook and cranny, whether its plinth, section or column, is carved with panels of elephants, dancers, celestial being and musicians. You can also visit the Rukmini Temple, which is barely some kilometers away from the main shrine.
