DWARAKA 
The Earthly Abode of Lord Krishna

This is stoutly refuted by Durgasankar Sastry and Bhattasali. Some identified it with modern Junagadh which was called Girinagar then. A few say it to be Mannargudi, a town located in Madurai district, down south, in Tamil Nadu; yet others account for it Mabhavpur, lying between Porbundar and Miyani. A place called Khed Dwaraka in Marwad is also brought into controversy. Finally, the holy town of Dwaraka situated on the bank of Gomati in the Okhama mandal region of the Western part of modern Gujarat is popularly identified with the original Dwaraka. Any how, Dwaraka, wherever it be, is included in the list of seven most important holy places of pilgrimage and visiting of which is a must for every ardent Hindu to get liberated himself/ herself from the cycle of births and deaths.
