DWARAKA 
The Earthly Abode of Lord Krishna

THE ARCHAMURTHI

The beautiful black granite statue of Sri Krishna, popularly known as Ranchhodrai is installed on a silver plated simhasan. The image of Dwarakadish measures about three feet in height. The Lord revealing Himself with four arms in standing posture casts an irresistible charm on the devotees and detains them longer. The enchantment of the Lord enhanced by the floral decoration and dazzling jewellery sends thrills in the shines of the devotees and makes them oblivious of the world. His hypnotizing splendour in the characteristic North Indian embellishments haunts the bhaktas for years, and prepares their minds for further visits. Indeed the infinite charms of that dark hued God defy description: they are to be seen and imbibed than enumerated and explained. No wonder, for sheer eyeful darsan of this sublime beauty, even the highly evolved fouls like saint-seers, sages and sadhus paid several visits to this shrine; yet their spiritual thirst was not quenched, as it were. Here is an illustration that fortifies this truth. Over 2000 generations worshipped this Lord, ever since its construction and it became a cradle of countless legends.
