    Surreal Atmosphere
    Surreal atmosphere. Given popularity and religious following, very crowded and chaotic. One does not really have an opportunity to offer prayers soulfully given the rush and volume of people filtering through at high speed. The flag changing which is frequent is a memorable experience. The journey to the temple and up is all part of the experience and breathtaking. Young children can be hard to manage up the journey given the chaos. Worst vising at least once for the significance and experience. Surrounding town is equally vibrant and colourful.

    Important temple. Must visit
    We went to temple in the evening to avoid morning rush. It was still crowded but we didn't find any difficulty to get in. It was Sunday and we could get out in 30 mins. They offer free service to keep your digital devices and shoes. But you can leave the shoes in front of the gate also. The temple is 400 years old and serene. It's still crowded and some people may find it difficult to move around.

    Jay Dwarkadhish
    This temple is one of the important Shreenathji Temple in India. The vibes here are very positive. You can feel the positivity once you're in this temple. Temple has timing restriction so better check when the darshan is open and then visit. It has good amount of crowd even on regular days. Just be little careful of Panda's as they bother you a lot. Again, its a personal choice how much to interact with them. Jay Dwarkadhish!!

    Divine experience
    Dwarkadhish temple is one of the four dhaams. It was a very divine experience. Temple was crowded. We need to leave our mobile phones outside the temple. Parking is around 400- 500 mts away from the main temple. You need to walk from there. There are lots of shops on the way to temple. Men and women have different queues. After the darshan we went down the stairs from the temple and there is gomati river there. We went in the evening there, Sunset was very beautiful.

    Awesome Darshan
    The place is of utmost importance for Hindu pilgrims. Temple is marvelous but stray cattles roaming around are eyesores . Pilgrims have to walk barefoot to have darshan & streets are full of cowdung. Shops around the site offer nice souvinirs & dresses for tourists. Gomti sangun area is full of local vendors who keep the area dirty. Good food is available for pilgrims in numerous restaurants

    Sacred place
    Temple is quite ancient and is weathering out slowly. It is almost built with sandstone. One needs to deposit cellphones, purse, electronic watches etc and are not allowed inside the temple. But this needs to be done with local vendors. There being lots of devotees and entrance being narrow there is no orderly entry. Female entry is separate and as a family one cannot enter together unfortunately. If one is coming first time he would not know from where his wife would come out! Dirt and beggars all around!

    Blessings
    Divine blessing, we were lucky to witness 56 Bhoog, being offered to Dwarkadish. You must were decent dress covering from top to bottom for darshan. Dwaj is changed 6 times a day out here. Great place and well maintained. You should avoid carrying mobile and other electronic goods to temple.

    Serene and blissful
    The dwarka temple is one the four dhaams in Hindu religion. It is a very sacred place to hindus. Key pointers: 1. The temple closes in afternoon from 1-5:30 pm. So plan your visit accordingly. 2. Nearby must see places: Bet dwarka, Rukmani ji temple, Dwarka beach and Naageshwara jyotirlinga. 3. The bridge to Bet dwarka is functional now. The car can go till the parking area, beyond which one needs to take an auto.

Dwarka

Travel dates from 23/03/24 to 26/03/24
Ahmedabad to Dwarka : To and Fro, Vande Bharat train
Imp:
1. Dhuleti festival is very crowded in Dwarka.
2. Do not forget to take medicines once you leave Dwarka since ongoing trip does not include any medical stores

3. Recall to buy props such as ball or disc since there are no shops near Shivrajpur beach to help you buy one.

Our itinerary:

We arrived at Dwarka on 24 Mar midnight and walked to the hotel from railway station since the local autos asked any random fare from 200 to 500 rs.
The hotel owner and receptionist denied extra cot in spite of earlier negotiated fare, for which we even paid advance.
On next day morning, we awaited for additional guests from Junagadh and then left for Bed Dwarka by 9.30 am
We halted for Honest restaurant in between for breakfast.
Since it was peak season, we had to took shuttle from parking to main temple.
We somehow managed to only get a glimpse of Lord Krishna since the priests kept pushing us ahead to accommodate for more devotees
We then proceeded to Gopi lake for few temples and had local lunch (Gujarati thali there)
From there, we then moved ahead to Nageshwar Jyoti Link. This place has few relaxation spaces behind temple near tree shade.
Our final destination was Shivrajpur beach which was reasonably fine. There are no water sports due to govt restriction. We arrived at 5 pm and stayed till 7 pm
We then bid farewell to taxi and proceeded to have dinner. Shirnath / Sanskruti are two good restaurants near local market place: Bhadrakali chok, teen batt

Temple is very crowded and not organised. All crowed is open to go for the darshan together so it gets really haphazard and unorganised. But this was the MOST AMAZING DARSHAN of Shreenathji. Very beautifully decorated and superb!
