Being a religious city in the country, the culture of Dwaraka revolves around temples, reverence and religious festivities. The ancient kingdom of Lord Krishna celebrates Janmashtami with great fervour. Young men celebrate it by forming a pyramid by climbing over each other’s shoulders. They aim to reach and break a pot filled with butter that is hung at a magnificent height tied to a rope. How long the men at the base can endure the weight of those above decides the success of the enterprise. Competitions are held in which many teams participate, adding a youthful fervour to the festival. The entire city comes alive during this time. \n\nDwarka is arguably the origin place of the Garba dance of Gujarat, which is inspired by the Raas Leela performed by Lord Krishna with cow herding girls during his adolescence.
