Dwarka is an ancient city in the state of Gujarat. It’s known as a Hindu pilgrimage site. Famous for having one of the 12 Jyotirlingas, Dwarka is best known as the home of Lord Krishna and will enchant you with the holiness that the air here carries. The name Dwarka literally translates to dwar meaning 'door' and ka meaning 'moksha' meaning the ‘door to salvation. And so the aura of the religious town reverberates with spiritual holiness and chants of the devotees seeking moksha. Dwarka is replete with grandeur temples, marvellous architecture and places of cultural significance. The beachside and the seashores are an added tourist attraction.
The Dwarkadhish temple, also known as the Jagat Mandir and occasionally spelled Dwarakadheesh, is a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Krishna, who is worshiped here by the name Dwarkadhish, or 'King of Dwarka'.
Nageshvara is one of the temples mentioned in the Shiva Purana and is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas. There is a giant statue of Lord Shiva in the temple complex.
