One of the seven holy pilgrimage centers in India, the ancient city of Dwarka is situated on western shore along the banks of river Gomti in Gujarat. It is known for its rich culture and heritage. Dwarka was the legendary capital of the lord Krishna, who founded it after his flight from Mathura. The town’s original temples were destroyed in 1372 by the Delhi emperors, but the most important of them, Jagat Mandir, subsequently was rebuilt. The five-story sandstone edifice is supported by 60 pillars and is visited by thousands of pilgrims annually. The main attractions of the city are Dwarkadish temple, Sankhoddar Island with the Ranchodrai and Matsyavatar temples, Lake Gopi, and Dwarikavan. Janmashtami is celebrated in a grand way throughout the city. During that time the whole city and local markets are awake until midnight with lots of cultural events.
