“Visited and forced to drink water...”

As we visited this temple, one of the priest started telling story about temple. And told us that in dwarka there was problem for drinking water due to some curse. So drinking water was here in this temple area.

Priest continued and said if we drink water here, our family members who died will get punya [virtuous deeds (good deeds)] They bring water from some other place and told us to donate as much as possible :)

I hate to pay for such marketing activity by such priest, but i tested glass of water. It was still salty type. Temple was good though.

Located on the outskirts ..was crowded. We went in the afternoon. Somehow the mahants felt an offering of Rs 20 for the hundi was measly and did not accept it.

We had spiritual experience in Dwarka. This temple in Dwarka is most important to visit because it is said that Goddess Rukmini ji had to undergo "Tapasya" to have the spiritual companionship of Lord Sri Krishna. Therefore visiting this temple in Dwarka marks or culminates the visit of the holy Dwarka "One of the four dhams of India".
