DWARAKA 
The Earthly Abode of Lord Krishna

ORIGIN

Its origin dates back to the time of Revatha, the great grand sun of Manu, the Immortal Law-giver. It is recorded that Revatha was the ruler of Anariha with Kusasthali as his capital. According to the legendary account, Revatha desired to get his daughter Revalhi married off to a deserving prince of exemplary character and military prowess of his times. teen his trials met with failures, he went straight to Brahmaloka fur advice and blessings from Vidhatha Himself. Uclighte d at his approach, Brahma told that many centuries had passed in the Bhuuluka by the time their conversation came to a close; yet Ho tendered advice: that Revathi should be married to Balarama, the. elder brother of Sri Krishna in the light of the changed conditions. The divine injunction was implemented implicitly. This is the first reference to, which was than called Dwaramati
Dwaraka, the oilier name Raivathafor Kusasthali, the capital of the kingdom Anarlha ruled by Raivatha.
