The world famous ancient town of Dwarka hardly needs any introduction. Located on the confluence of Gomati River and the Gulf of Kutch between 22’ & 22.28’ N latitude and 68.59’ E longitude, Dwarka is Lord Krishna’s town. The original temple of Lord Krishna is believed to be constructed by Vajranabhji, the great grand son of Lord Krishna. The existing temple is a 15th/16th century structure constructed in Chalukya style in 27m x 21m area. Its tallest peak is 51.8m high, its east-west length is 29m and north-south width is 23m. It is said that Dwarka’s pilgrim starts receiving Punya of Ashwamedh Yajna from the moment he commences his journey towards Dwarka.
Dwarka Mandir Vyavasthapan Samiti has taken initiatives to bring about development in and around Dwarka so as to enhance and upgrade the existing amenities, facilities and infrastructure. It is in order that more and more tourist, pilgrims and lovers of ancient culture, history and archaeology frequent the place. The services of the Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) have been requisitioned for formulating comprehensive and detailed work-plan for the development of Dwarka and surrounding places.
