The Dwarakadheesh temple (43 m) is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Krishna, who is worshiped here by the name Dwarkadhish, or ‘King of Dwarka’. Lord Krishna’s grandson, Vajranabha, is said to have built the original temple of Dwarkadhish over the hari-griha (Lord Krishna’s residential place). The main shrine is believed to be 2,500 years old while the present temple was built in 16th century AD. The flag is changed 5 times a day in a dangerous operation and, according our guide, no one remembers any incident.
Next stop was Nageshwar Temple where a 25 m tall statue of a sitting Lord Shiva and a large garden are major attractions:
We went then to Bet Dwarka, a small island famous for its temple dedicated to Lord Krishna. From Okha Port we took a boat for 20 INR. To make an idea, a single travel with hovercraft from Portsmouth (Southsea) to Isle of Wight (Ryde) is 70 times more expensive. It is also true that from Okha to Bet Dwarka are less than 2 Km.
The temple was close when we arrived and people were patiently waiting under a big tree:
On the way back to port I saw a cane press to make fresh cane juice:
