JAMNATHAMI BEST WISHES TO YOU ALL MY FRIENDS AND SECRET FOES !!!

 
KRISHNA ~  THE  LEGEND WHO WAS PHYSICAL INCARNATION OF THE QUALITIES OF THE SUPREME SOUL  LEFT THE WORLD  WITH EVERYONE LONGING FOR  HIM .... !!

Dwarka  ...........  is a city one iof the oldest in the world ... and a municipality of  Jamnagar district in the Gujarat state in India. Dwarka  (Dvaraka in Sanskrit - used in this article when referring to the city in a historical context), also known as Dwarawati in Sanskrit  literature is rated as one of the seven most ancient cities in the country. Dwarka is located at the geographical coordinates of  22°14'N 68°58'E? / ?22.23°N 68.97°E? / 22.23; 68.97. It is a relatively flat region at sea-level, having an average elevation of 0  metres (0 feet).

The legendary city of Dvaraka was the dwelling place of Lord Krishna. It is believed that due to damage and destruction by the  sea, Dvaraka has submerged six times and modern day Dwarka is therefore the seventh such city to be built in the area.  

The temple has five storey tower which was built by Sambha, who is the grandson of Lord Shri Krishna. The city was built by  Vishwakarma in one day , by who is a celestial architect. The temple was made of limestone and sand. There is a flag hoisted in  the  temple tower everyday which waves in air beautifully welcoming the pilgrims. The structure of the temple is quite complicated  . Even in Tsunami or Earthquake the temple was not destroyed. There are two gateways namely Swarga Dwar where pilgrims enter and Moksha Dwar where pilgrims exit. From the temple one can view the Sangamam of River Gomati flowing  towards the sea. 

There are shrines for Vasudeva, Devaki, Balarama and Temple of Patranis ~ The Queens of Shri Krishna  the principals namely   Revathy, Subhadra, Rukmini Devi, Jambavathi Devi and Sathybhama Devi. There is a special temple for Rukmini Devi on the way  to Bet Dwaraka. Bet Dwaraka can be reached through boat. It is also the temple which is like Palace where Lord Shri Krishna had  ruled. It is the same idol of Lord Dwarakanath kept in Bet Dwaraka. The temple looks like a Palace and has many Shrines for  Lakshmi Narayana, Trivikrama, Jambavathi Devi, Sathybhama Devi and Rukmini Devi.

The city derives its name from word "Dwar" meaning door in Sanskrit. Dwarka is one of the holiest cities in  Hinduism and one of  the 4 main "dhams" along with Badrinath, Puri, Rameshwaram. The Jagatmandir temple which houses the Dwarkadhish, a form of  Krishna.

Nageshwar Jyotirling, one of the 12 holy shrines of Lord Shiva, is located near Dwarka. Dwarka is also the site of Dwaraka Pitha  (also known as Kalika Pitha), one of the four cardinal mathas established by Sri Adi Shankaracharya, the others being those at Sringeri, Puri and Jyotirmath. Adi Sankara had visited Dwarakdish Shrine and had established the Dwarka peeth. The Lord here is  dressed in Kalyana Kolam where he appears to be a Royal Wedding costume. The place is so sacred as Lord Shri Krishna  himself had resided and his successors had built the temple. It is one of the 108 Divya desam.

Dwarka is mentioned in the Mahabharata, the Harivansha, the Bhagavata Purana, the Skanda Purana, and the Vishnu Purana. It is  said that this Dwarka was located near the site of the current city of Dwarka, but was eventually deserted and submerged into the  sea.

Sri Krishna renounced war in Mathura for the greater good (and hence the name Ranchodrai) and founded (and settled in)  Dvaraka. Sri Krishna killed Kansa (his maternal uncle) and made Ugrasen (his maternal grandfather) the king of Mathura. Enraged,  the father-in-law of Kansa, Jarasandha (king of Magadha) with his friend Kalayavan attacked Mathura 17 times. For the safety of the people, Krishna and Yadavas decided to move the capital from Mathura to Dvaraka.

Submersion into the Sea

After Krishna left the earth for Vaikunta,about 36 years after the Mahabharat War (3138 BC), and the major Yadava leaders were  killed in disputes among themselves, Arjuna went to Dwarka to bring Krishna's grandsons and the Yadava wives to  Hastinapur, to  safety. After Arjuna left Dwarka, it was submerged into the sea. Following is the account given by Arjuna, found in the  

Mahabharata:     ...imposed on it by nature. The sea rushed into the city. It coursed through the streets of the beautiful city. The  sea covered up everything in the city. I saw the beautiful buildings becoming submerged one by one. In a matter of a few moments it was all over. The sea had now become as placid as a lake. There was no trace of the city. Dwaraka was just a name;  just a memory.

The Vishnu Purana also mentions the submersion of Dwarka, stating :  On the same day that Krishna departed from the earth the  powerful dark-bodied Kali Age descended. The oceans rose and  submerged the whole of Dwarka.
