According to the legends, Lord Krishna established his capital at Dwarka on the bank of the Gomti Creek. Krishna's great grand son, Vajranabh, built the present temple Dwarkanath. It is believed that the temple was erected in one night under Vajranabh's direction by supernatural agency.
This temple is part of famous Saptapuri Yatra and Char Dham Yatra.
The current temple is built in Chalukya style of architecture. The temple covers an area of 27 metre by 21 metre. The temple is a 5 storey structure, made of limestone and is supported by 72 pillars. The temple spire is 78.3 Metres high. The temple, though not changed dramatically, shows the influence of different dynasties in its sculptural detailing

For most Hindus, praying at temples far and near, is not just for a fleeting sense of gratification but an eternal drive of their devotional self. We worship the divine presence in our idols and the reverberating essence of holiness in our temples. The unflinching faith of the devotees have turned many of our religious places into sanctums of all powerful energy. Pilgrimaide is first of its kind platform in the world to provide its users with comprehensive, consistent and consolidated access to information on various pilgrim destinations. This is our humble attempt, as we compile data to help the devotees travel to and connect with the shrines across the country.
