Dwarkadhish Temple in Dwarka, Jamnagar, Gujarat

Dwarka was once the kingdom of Lord Krishna, who is also one of the popular gods as per the Hindu faith. It is an ancient city and has an eventful history, which is of several centuries old. Located in the Jamnagar district of the State of Gujarat in India, the video here shows the Dwarkadhish temple, which was built around 400 B.C.E. by Vajranabhji, the great grandson of Lord Krishna.

It is believed that a major portion of Dwarka city lies submerged in the sea, where the remains still exist. The temple architecture is so exciting with carved pillars and fascinating sculptures on the walls of this shrine.

The idol of Lord Dwarkadhish, the presiding deity here is made of glistening black stone and is about 2.25 ft in height.
