The Sacred Dham Of Krishna

The Dwarkadhish Temple (Jagat Mandir) is  2500 years old and was built by Lord Krishna’s great-grandson, Vajranabh. The idol of Lord Krishna worshipped here is a black one made using limestone. 

The historic temple was renovated many times, particularly in the 16th and 19th centuries. It is believed that the original city was submerged in the sea. This city was built by Lord Krishna himself. Some years ago, in an underwater excavation, the remains of this city were found. 

The temple has two gates, namely Swarg Dwar and Moksha Dwar. Devotees walk in from the gate of heaven (Swarg) and leave from the gate of liberation (Moksha). It is one of the Char Dhams of India. Badrinath, Rameshwaram, and Puri are the other three.
