DWARAKA 
The Earthly Abode of Lord Krishna

UNIQUENESS

That Nandanavana of Yadunandana; that earthly Vaikuntha of Bhagavathothamas; that terrestrial capital of Srimannarayana during His short sojourn in the martyaloka; that make-shift stage of Natanasutradhari for enacting Jagannataka; that meeting place of celestials with terrestrials for embarking on the Dharmaoddharana deals; that seat of the highest Judicature of Dwaparayuga; that Divyarama from which the Yadava blossoms wafted inexhaustible sweet fragrance; that veritable Concert Hall wherefrom the liquid notes of mellifluous Venunada flowed down to lull the world, time and again; that divya thirtha which is luring every brand of Vaishnava sampradaya down the ages; that eternal pulpet specialised in teaching the crafty statecraft to the craftier aspirants by the craftiest Rajatantragna; that immaculate Premapita standing on which the Jaganmohanakara revealed the mufti-dimensional forms of amara Prema to love-lore Gopikas of my raid tastes, goes by the name of Dwaraka. In the past and present too. It is situated on the,sacred banks of river Gomati flowing in the North Western part of the then Sourastra, now called Gujarat. That entire region is split up into five parts and called Pancha Dwarakas-Krishna Dwaraka; Rukmini Dwaraka; Okha Dwaraka; Beti-Dwaraka and Dwaraka submerged.
