DWARAKA 
The Earthly Abode of Lord Krishna

While at Dwaraka, the devotees have to suffer three things, viz., (1) Danda - paying several kinds of taxes from the point of bathing to the spot, wherefrom they feast their eyes with the darsan of the Lord; (2) Munda - tonsorial operation as an indispensable rite for every theist; (3) Damreceiving impressions of disc and conch on. arms and temples with rod-hot iron casts. These were the practices, of course, existed in the bygone days and every pious visitor was willingly subjecting himself to these tortures with smiles, but visitors in modern lines have conveniently relegated them for personal comforts, branding them as blind beliefs. Keeping this in view, The Prince of Gaikwar abolished taxes in 1943 A.D.; but a few ultra orthodox theists are still holding on to those rituals.
