About dwarka

If you are enthused by spirituality, mysticism and Hindu mythology, then Dwarka city in Gujarat should definitely find a place in your travel plans. The Indian government has conceived a scheme called HRIDAY (i.e. Heritage Development and Augmentation Yojana) for twelve cities of archaeological importance in India, and Dwarka - one of the seven oldest religious cities (sapt puris) in the country, is a part of it. \r\n\r\nDwarka is home to important temples like the Rukmini Devi Mandir, Gomti Ghat, etc. The famous Dwarkadhish Mandir houses the Dwarka Math (Monastery), one of the four religious centres (i.e. char dham). Near the city is an island called Bet Dwarka where the family of Lord Krishna is said to have once lived. You will also find a lighthouse on the seashore. \r\n\r\nIn 2001, it was reported that artifacts about a submerged city near the Gulf of Cambay had been discovered. These claims have been disputed, but the treasure hunt is being turned into a tourist attraction. The government is planning to develop scuba diving facilities to view the submerged city.
