About Dwarkadhish Temple
The Dwarkadhish Temple, also known as the Jagat Mandir, is a Hindu temple devoted to Krishna, who is known as Dwarkadhish, or ‘King of Dwarka,’. The temple is located in Dwarka, Gujarat, India, which is one of the Char Dham pilgrimage circuit’s attractions.
Dwarkadhish Temple History
It is said to have been built above Hari-Griha by Vajranabha (Krishna’s grandson), according to legend. As a result, the Dwarkadhish temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna, the Lord of Dwarka. After Rameshwaram, Badrinath, and Puri, the temple is regarded one of the Char Dham sacred pilgrimage sites by Hindus. This was after Adishakaracharya, an 8th-century theologian and philosopher who founded the Sharda Peeth in this location, paid a visit. The Dwarkadhish temple is Shri Vishnu’s 108th Divya Desam in the world, as described in the Divya Prabhanda scriptures.
Architecture of Dwarkadhish Temple
Made of limestone and sand, the magnificent temple is a sight to behold. Its impressive five-story tower is supported by 72 pillars and a 78.3m high spire with elaborate carvings. It boasts a Shikhar that stands 42 metres tall and flies a banner made of 52 yards of fabric. The sun and moon motifs on the flag represent Lord Krishna’s kingship over the temple for as long as the sun and moon remain. The two entrances Swarg Dwar (where pilgrims enter) and Moksha Dwar (where pilgrims escape) add to the temple’s magnificence, which includes a vestibule, sanctum, and a rectangular hall with porches on either side. 56 stairs go to the banks of the Gomti river from the edifice’s south portal.
