Gujarat - Dwarka Beach
 
Dwarka Beach
 

Gujarat has the longest coastline stretching around 1666 km, the longest among all Indian states. Dotted by beaches, picturesque rocky coastal lands, beach palaces and shore temples, the Gujarat beaches are some of the best beach holidaying destinations in India. The coasts of Gujarat ensures a holiday that blends relaxing on sea sides with sightseeing and other beach activities.


Like Somnath, Dwarka is an important center for Hindu pilgrimageThis was the kingdom of Lord Krishna, who came here with the Yadav clan from Mathura, and marine excavations have revealed a grand city. The Dwarkadish temple, or Jagat mandir, the main reason for visiting Dwarka, is said to be thousands of years old, but the present incarnation is 17th century and the shikara dome dates from the 19th century. Intricate sculpture lines the facade. Krishna's consort, Rukmani, has been honoured by a fabulous temple, with exquisite carvings, dated to the 12th-13th century. Do not miss any of the other temples along the coast and the Ved Bhuvan, where Vedic principles are taught. Dwarka has some fine stretches of beach, and though crowded by pilgrims, you can always find a quiet spot to unwind. Shore birds gather in large numbers along the coast.

Okha north of Dwarka is a jetty, from where you can get ferries for Bet Dwarka,an island covered with temples. The eastern tip of the island, to visit which you may need to charter an entire boat, has a lovely white beach, coral reefs and extensive marinelife. Dolphins and porpoise can be seen surfacing to breathe, sea turtles inhabit the beach, octopus,star fish, sea urchins etc abound!Accommodation options are limited-Radhika is your best bet. Dwarka receives trains from Bombay.
