Dwarka ( dwar in hindi ) literally translated means the DOORWAY .
DWARKA is an ancient city steeped in mythology and is located at the western edge of India and overlooks the vast ARABIAN SEA.
It is supposed to have been built thousands of years ago and was once a thriving port city.It was the Door to the Seas.
A lighthouse reminds us of trading ships laden with silk and spices once docking here from faraway lands of the Pharaohs in Egypt.
The lighthouse represents the western edge of INDIA.
Dwarka finds a unique place in Hindu scriptures. It was the magnificent and prosperous capital of Lord Krishna thousands of year go.
Going back to 2500 BC , Dwarka is repeatedly mentioned in historical references as well as in Hindu scriptures.
Recent Explorations and surveys of the sea bed near modern Dwarka have revealed the existence of a city (much like Atlantis) retaken by the sea.
The temple at Dwarka is an important site of pilgrimage for Hindus and is one the four CHARDHAMS , each located at the four corners of the county.
This temple is called Samudra Mandir or the THE SEA TEMPLE.
Gazing out towards the endless waters of the ARABIAN SEA is a unique and humbling experience.
I peered through a small window inside the temple and watched the waters swirl and crash against the rocks below as the River Gomti submerges itself into the Sea.
This temple is located at the confluence of the River Gomti and the Arabian Sea in Dwarka.
