The Main Temple At Dwarka, Situated On Gomti Ravine, Is Known As Jagat Mandir. The Temple Has A Five Storey Tower Supported By 72 Pillars Which Was Built By Krishna's Grandson, Vajranabha, Who Is The Grandson Of Lord Sri Krishna. The Temple Is Made Of Limestone And Sand. There Is A Flag Hoisted In The Temple Tower Four Times Each Day, Which Waves In The Air Beautifully Welcoming The Pilgrims. The Structure Of The Temple Is Quite Complicated. There Are Two Gateways: Swarga Dwar, Where Pilgrims Enter, And Moksha Dwar, Where Pilgrims Exit.
It Is Located On The Route Between Dwarka And The Bet Dwarka Island, On The Coast Of Saurashtra In Gujarat. This Temple Enshrines One Of The 12 Jyotirling In India. This Powerful Jyotirling Symbolizes Protection From All Poisons. It Is Said That Those Who Pray To The Nageshwar Ling Become Free Of Poison. According To Shiv Puran, A Shiva Devotee By Name Supriya Was Attacked By A Demon Daruka While In A Boat. The Demon Imprisoned Him Along With Several Others At His Capital Daruka Forest (Jungle) Where He Resided With His Wife Daruki. Supriya Advised All Prisoners To Recite The Mantra ‘Om Namah Shivaya’. When Daruka Came To Know About This He Ran To Kill Supriya. Instantly Lord Shiva Appeared In The Form Of A Jyotirling. One Of The Nageshwar’s Attractions Is The 26 M Statue Of A Sitting Shiva Outside
Gopi Talav Is 21 Kms Far From Dwarka. It Is A Small Pond. Gopis (Young Girls) Used To Take Bath In This Lake So It Is Called Gopi Talav. In Mathura, Krishna Often Danced Rass With Gopis. After He Left For Dwarka, They Missed Him So Much That They Decided To Visit Him. They All Reunited At A Lake North Of Dwarka And Dance Once More Under The Full Moon. At The End Of The Dance, Unable To Part With Krishna, The Gopis Decide To Merge Into The Earth. A Legend Says That They Transformed Into Yellow Soil Called Gopi Chandan. Even Today The Soil Of The Gopi Talav Is Extremely Smooth And Yellow In Color. The Main Attraction Of Gopi Lake Is Mahaprabhu Ji Bethak.
