DWARAKA 
The Earthly Abode of Lord Krishna

RUKMINI DWARAKA

It is situated at a distance of 3 kms. from Dwaraka and lies on the way to Beti Dwaraka. It is a pretty shrine built in red stone. It casts an irresistible charm both by its size and sculpture adorning the outer side. The images of Rukmini with Her Lord Sri Krishna are captivating by their ethereal beauty and decoration. Pilgrims unfailingly visit, this and worship with great fervour.


PINDATARA

This is, another place of immense spiritual importance. It is the place for pindapradhana, by the theists in particular. The peculiarity of this place is that the pindas when thrown into the lake after due rituals float and swim than sinking as found- in other places. Hence it goes. by the name Pindataraka. This place is associated with another event that brought havoc to the Yadava community. It is said that Sambha, the son of Sri Krishna born through Jambavati was playing practical jokes on each and everyone, regardless of persons status, age, mood, sex, place etc. Once when Durvasa visited Dwaraka, Sambha visited him with his like minds dressed as, pregnant woman and asked him to name the sex of the baby to be born in a mocking manner. Unable to stomach the indecent joke Durvasa cursed him anon saying that the would-be child would become responsible for the annihilation of the entire community. Certainly the curse ran its course. This disastrous event took place here.
