KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN GUJARAT

Dwaraka - Beti Dwaraka Mandir

The glory of Dwaraka does not confine itself to the imposing mandir of Bhagawan Krishna, lying on the bank of Gomati river, buI it strikes the eye at five places going by the names of Pancha Dwarakas - Beti Dwaraka, Rukmini Ihvaraka, Okha Dwaraka and the one submerged i, addition to the main - Dwaraka.

There is a motorable road upto Okha Dwaraka, and from here pilgrims go by boats. There are mechanized boats run by several companies and they charge one rupee per head for ferrying across a distance of 8 kms. It is quite pleasant, and all enjoy the voyage. The town authorities collect tax from every pilgrim. There are two temples dedicated to Sri Krishna, and in both of them Vallabha Sampradaya is observed. There are many old, dilapidated palatial buildings identified as Sri Krishna's residential quarters and palaces of his ashtamahishis. The temples are huge in dimensions and grand architectural designs.

It is situated in an island of the Bay of Cutch, and is 20 miles off the main temple.
