Dwarakadish Temple


Dwarka the base camp of Okhamandal taluka is in the compelling west of the Saurashtra landmass on the Arabian Sea. It is a station on the Ahmedabad-Okha expansive gage railroad line, around 137-km from Jamnagar, 217 km from Rajkot and 378 km from Ahmedabad. A state parkway with Jamnagar and Okha likewise interfaces it. Closest airplane terminal is Jamnagar. Dwarka lies on 20.22' north scope and 69.05' east longitude and based on the night bank of Gamut brook. Dwarka was known as the city of Gold. Shree Krishna came here from Mathura alongside some Yadav families and builds up his own particular domain Dwarka. That was the legend however science demonstrated it incompletely. Researchers explored on that and have found a few actualities.

Dwarka is gotten from 'Dwar', an entryway, and in antiquated times its prospering port was thought to be the passage to the fundamental area. As "Ka" signifies "Brahma" which means, portal to Moksha. It is called Dwarkamati and Dwarkavati. Being embraced home and capital of Shri Krishna after he surrendered Mathura. It is held in such a high regard as a position of Hindu journey that it is thought to be one of the four guideline sacred spots or chardham, it is otherwise called Mokshapuri.

About The Temple

It is trusted that because of harm and annihilation by the ocean, Dwarka has submerged six times in the ocean and the current Dwarka is the seventh such city to be inherent the territory. Vajranabh, Lord Krishna's successor and extraordinary grandson, is accepted to have constructed the present temple Dwarkanath. The five-storeyed temple of Dwarkadhish or Ranchodji at Dwarka ascends to a stature of 43 m at the conjunction of the stream Gomati with the Arabian Sea. The inward temple is allot ready to the thirteenth century AD and the ensuing broadening as a get together lobby known, as Ladwa mandap and the dazzling sikhara are datable to the fifteenth century. The temple is made of limestone and sand. Within the wall in area of the Dwarkadhish temple complex sanctums devoted to Pradyumnaji, Devakiji, Purushottamji, Kuseshvar Mahadev furthermore the Sharda Peeth built up by Adi Shankra Charya in the ninth century can be seen.

Dwarka is one of four most blessed journey destinations (Chardham) of Hindu confidence and is connected with Lord Krishna's life. It is thought to be one of the four foremost sacred spots or chardham, it is otherwise called Mokshapuri. Situated on the western most tip of Saurastra (Gujarat), this mammoth elaborate holy place is a standout amongst the most forcing five-storied structures of Hindu design in Gujarat on the juncture of waterway Gomti and Arabian ocean.

It is otherwise called Jagat Mandir, the five-story structure of the Dwarkadhish Temple is based on seventy-two columns. The temple tower is 78.3m high. From the temple vault waves an eighty-four foot since quite a while ago kaleidoscopic banner improved with the images of the sun and moon.  There are two doors to the temple. The primary passageway (north passageway) is called "Moksha Dwara" (Door to Salvation). The south passage is called "Swarga Dwara" (Gate to Heaven). Outside this entryway are 56 stages that prompts the Gomati River. Dwarka was submerged by the ocean directly after the passing of Lord Krishna. Dwarka is purified as the spot where Lord Vishnu slew the evil spirit Shankhasura. The Puranas specify the 12 Jyotirlingas or sections of light speaking to Lord Shiva which showed in various parts of the nation. One of these is situated in Dwarka and is known as the Nageshwar Mahadev. The Jagat Mandir or Nij Mandir shapes the sanctum of the Dwarkadish temple and goes back to 2500 years. Jagat Mandir has its own lobby of crowd and a funnel shaped tower.

The top of the lobby is upheld by 60 segments and the primary temple raises five stories high. The tower ascends to a tallness of 157 feet and is lavishly cut. In Puranic times, present-day Dwarka was known as Kushasthali or Dwaravati and delighted in pride of spot as the most vital spot on the Saurashtra coast. It is said that Lord Krishna, in the wake of killing Kansa, left his residence Mathura and went with the whole Yadava group to the shoreline of Saurashtra where he established a town and named it Swarnadwarika.

Numerous Hindus intensely trust that the temple was raised in one night by an extraordinary office, under Vajranabh's heading. Legend has it that when passing on, Lord Krishna requested that his fans leave Swarnadwarika so that the ocean could overwhelm it. Until this day, Lord Krishna's city lies covered under the ocean. Unearthings have uncovered that the ocean gulped five settlements, the present-day Dwarka being the 6th in line.

About the deity

The central within the main shrine embraces the idol of Lord Dwarkadhish. The idol is presented in the form of a four-armed Vishnu,with Lord Krishna as the incarnation. It is called Trivikrama. Apart from this idol, there are idols of Baldevaji (Balrama), Pradyumna and Aniruddha (the grandsons of Lord Krishna). A small shrine is dedicated to Kuseswara Mahadeva (Shiva). Besides these, there are shrines dedicated to Devaki (the mother of Lord Krishna), Veni madhava (Lord Vishnu), Radhika , Jambuvati , Satyabhama , Lakshmi , Saraswati and Lakshmi-Narayan in the temple.

Legend And Stories

There is a legend behind the symbol of Lord Dwarkadhish in the temple. Badana, an old fan, used to come every day from Dakor to Dwarka, keeping in mind the end goal to have a look at the Lord Dwarkadhish. The Lord was truly mollified with her and one day, he obliged Badana to Dakor, as icon. The ministers at Dwarka temple got furious at Badana, who took the icon as indicated by them. The rankled ministers pursued Badana to get back the symbol. Badana persuaded the ministers to leave the symbol rather than gold. the ministers settled upon the condition and incredibly, the icon happened to be as light as one nose-ring. This marvel was finished by the Lord himself, as he knew Badana had just a nose-ring to offer. Notwithstanding, the Lord didn't baffle the ministers and said that they would discover a reproduction on a specific day. The ministers couldn't avoid their curiosity and uncovered the prescribed site very early. They discovered one yet to develop symbol that is right away cherished at Dwarka.

This is a post about the temple city of Dwarka. Not the Dwarka in Uttar Pradesh, but rather the Dwarka where Lord Krishna got away to and built up the city of Dwarvati to escape from the rehashed assaults by his uncle Kansa's dad in-law Jarasandha. On a more cutting edge balance, the town of Dwarka falls inside of the locale of Jamnagar, and is in the condition of Gujarat. Jamnagar is well known for the enormous refineries and petrochemical plants keep running by the Tata, Reliance, and Essar bunches.

Going to the temple, it has an entrancing history, keeping in mind the first temple is said to be 2,500 years of age, the present temple is barely 400 years of age.

A temple was worked at the site around 400 BC by Vajranabhji, the considerable grandson of Lord Krishna, however the present structure was worked amid the sixteenth century in a run of the mill Chalukyan style of engineering. The wonderful temple ascends to a stature of 51.8 mts. Otherwise called the Jagat Mandir, the temple has two Sikhara. The Nij shikhar (The more extended sikhar) is the place the god of Lord Dwarkadhish is put. The colossal temple comprises of 60 dazzlingly cut columns and various figures that portray the impact of different lines, for example, the Guptas, Pallavas and Chavdas (alluding to Chavda Kingdom) that led Dwarka throughout the years.

The passageway to the temple is from the north, otherwise called the Moksha Dwaar while towards the south is the Swarg Dwaar, from where a progression of steps leads down to the banks of stream Gomti. By, the temple was developed in a solitary day by Vishwakarma, the ruler of development. The divinity of Lord Dwarkadhish is made of gleaming dark stone and is around 2.25 ft in tallness. The four hands of the Lord conveys a conch, wheel, a mace and a lotus each and is famously known as 'Shankh Chakra Gada Padma Chaturbhuj'. It is said that the god was covered up for quite a long time to shield it from trespassers while another divinity brought from the Rukmini temple was introduced in its nonattendance. The first divinity was reinstalled amid the sixteenth century after the development of the new temple. The terrorist assaults on the Akshardham Temple in 2002 were presumably a trigger for upgrading the security crosswise over structures and places that were regarded as high on the terrorists' hitlist.

Anyway, the story goes something like this. Rukmini and Krishna had been hitched, and living in Dwarka. One day, they went to the sage Durvasa and welcomed him to go to their castle for sustenance. Presently, Durvasa muni was a man with a hair-trigger temper. It didn't take long to outrage him. Indeed, there is a story in the Mahabharata that discussions about Duryodhana's endeavors to get the sage to revile the Pandavas, yet that is another story (that story does not discover a notice in the Critical Edition of the Mahabharata, a compassion). Returning to the story, Durvasa muni concurred, however on the condition that he be seated on a chariot, and both Krishna and Rukmini pull the chariot. The couple concurred, and the savvy set off. Dwarka can get hot in the summers, and pulling a chariot is no mean accomplishment, notwithstanding for the Lord. In this way, after some time, the dainty Rukmini was parched. In any case, how would she be able to have any water before the sage, a visitor, a respected visitor at that, and an effortlessly insulted sage with incomprehensible yogic forces, was nourished? All things considered, Krishna couldn't bear his wife's thirst, and he struck his toe into the ground, and grew new water starting from the earliest stage.

Rukmini slaked her thirst. The rishi saw that. He flew into an anger. No measure of atonement could soothe his outrage. Out came a condemnation. Rukmini would live independently from Krishna. For a time of twelve years. In any case, the sage was not done. Moreover, there would be not a single crisp water in sight in Dwarka. New water would need to be gotten to the city from far away. And so it happened that Krishna's main wife, Rukmini, has a templ

Historical Facts

In the Mahabharata references to successive sun based and lunar obscurations as additionally references to some heavenly perceptions have been made. Dr. R.N.Iyengar, the considerable researcher of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore inspected significant references and hunt down the good dates by making utilization of planetarium programming (PVIS and EZC). He reasoned that the greater part of these references were inside reliable and that the obscurations and heavenly perceptions of Mahabharata have a place with the period 1493 BC - 1443 BC of Indian History. (allude Indian Journal of History of Science/38.2/2003/77-115).

In the Mahabharata there are references to three successive sun oriented shrouds and to some other planetary positions. Reference to the principal sun based obscuration comes in the Sabha Parva (79.29), graphically portrayed by Vidur when Pandavas begin their trip to the woods on being expelled for a long time of life estranged abroad and one year of life undercover after they had lost everything in the round of shakers. Following 13 years of outcast and in disguise life, Pandavas returned to Hastinapur and they requested their kingdom back however Duryodhana won't. A few endeavors to anticipate war fizzled and war got to be fast approaching. There is a reference to the second sun oriented overshadowing in the Bhisma Parva (3.29), after a lunar obscuration happening inside of the same fortnight a couple of days before the genuine war of Mahabharata. These obscurations happened following 14-15 years of the principal sun oriented shroud the epic likewise alludes to some unfavorable planetary positions between the second sun powered overshadowing and the start of the war on Kartika Purnima (Bhisma Parva 3.14 to 3.19).

On Kartika Krishna Ashtami, Saturn was close Rohini and Mars was in the middle of Jayestha and Anuradha. Twenty two days after the fact, on Kartika Purnima, Saturn was close Rohini, Mars was close Jayestha, an unpleasant planet (most likely uranus) was in the middle of Citra and Swati. Another white planet (perhaps Jupiter) had moved from Purva-bhadra to Uttar-bhadra. Reference to the third sun based obscuration comes in the Mausala Parva (2.19 to 2.20) happening in the 36th year of the Mahabharata War. This was noticeable from the city of Dwarka which is expressed to have been consequently submerged under the ocean. For these perceptions to be inside reliable there ought to have been three sun based obscurations inside of a time of 50 years. The first and the second one after a crevice of 14-15 years ought to have been unmistakable from Kurukshetra while the third sunlight based overshadowing ought to have been obvious from Dwarka following 35 years of the second one.

From references to these shrouds and divine perceptions Dr. Iyengar arranged the rundown of perfect dates and inferred that these obscurations alongwith the expressed planetary positions were perceptible amid the period 1493 BC - 1443 BC on the grounds that the planetarium programming demonstrates that:

On 19.3.1493 BC there was sun based obscuration obvious from Kurukshetra.After around 15 years, on first June, 1478 BC, there was a sun oriented shroud unmistakable from Kurukshetra which was gone before by a lunar overshadowing amid the same fortnight on sixteenth May 1478 BC.About 3 months after the fact, there was Kartika Krishna Ashtami on 20.9.1478 BC when Saturn was close Rohini (in Bhar-Kritika) and Mars was in the middle of Jayestha and Anuradha.

After three weeks, on 12.10.1478 BC, there was Kartika Purnima when the war really begun. On that day, Saturn was still close Rohini (as it really moved from Bhar Kritt to Rohini between 1.6.1478 BC to 10.11.1478 BC). Mars was close Jayestha. Uranus, which most likely is alluded to as unpleasant planet, was in the middle of Citra and Swati. Jupiter had moved from Purva-bhadra to Uttar-bhadra on 12.10.1478 BC.

In the 36th year after Mahabharata war in October 1478 BC, a sun based shroud could be seen from Dwarka on 7.1.1443 BC.

Subsequently according to archaeo-cosmic estimations, Mahabharata War was battled in 1478 BC and Dwarka City got submerged in 1443 BC. These conclusions touched base at are confirmed by marine archeologists, archeologists and also by the history specialists who have dissected the ancestry graphs of rulers given in Puranas.

Marine Archeological investigations around Dwarka - The on-shore and seaward investigations completed in and around Dwarka amid most recent 50 years have uncovered that Dwarka was a prosperous city in old times which was decimated and reproduced a few times. The work of extraordinary excavators such as Shri Z.D.Ansari and Shri M.S.Mate and chance disclosure of temples of ninth century AD and first century AD covered close to the present Dwarkadhish Temple provoked setting of a Marine Archeology Center mutually by National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) and Archeological Survey of India (ASI). A venture for marine archeological investigations in Dwarka was started under the dynamic administration of incredible marine paleontologist Dr. S.R.Rao who has the qualification of being granted "The World Ship Trust Award" for exceptional examination done in this field.

Dr. S.R.Rao's group comprised of master submerged wayfarers, prepared jumper picture takers and experienced archeologists. The method of geophysical overview was joined with the utilization of reverberation sounders, mud-penetrators, sub-base profilers and submerged metal finders. This group completed twelve marine archeological endeavors between the year 1983 to 1992 AD and articles/ancient pieces recuperated were sent to Physical Research Laboratory for dating. By utilizing thermoluminescence, cell based dating and other present day exploratory procedures, relics were observed to be having a place with the period fifteenth century BC to eighteenth century BC. In his incredible work "The Lost City of Dwarka", Dr. S.R.Rao has given realistic and logical points of interest of these disclosures and antiquities. He has reasoned that:

(i) The area for building the city of Dwarka had been recovered from the ocean between sixteenth to fifteenth century BC and a braced city was based on stone pressing with external portal to the ocean and internal entryway to Gomti waterway. This proves the references in the Epic Mahabharata according to which Dwarka city was worked by Shri Krishna in the wake of recovering the area from the ocean and it was assembled just a couple of years before the Game of Dice in 1493 BC.

(ii) The thermoluminescence dating of brilliant Redware Pottery things found amid investigations uncovered that these were 3520 years of age i.e. around sixteenth fifteenth century BC.

(iii) The most well known rectangular seal with engraved themes of bull, unicorn and goat found in trench UW6 in the ocean bed was dated as fitting in with sixteenth century BC. The seal confirms the references made in the antiquated compositions that each subject of Dwarka was required to convey a mudra (seal) as a characteristic of recognizable proof.

3 creature headed mudra, votive container and copper ringer

(IV) A copper chime and a copper lota, metal things incorporating U-formed articles with gaps at both closures and a bronze ringer, all were dated as fitting in with fifteenth century BC. Stone grapples with twofold gaps and triangular kaleidoscopic stone stays recouped from under the ocean were like the ones found in Lothal unearthings having a place with 23rd century BC.

(v) A votive container with seven characters engraved was found. Perusing in light of Semitic-Indus-Phonetic quality uncovered that script is old Indo-Aryan and like alternate Indus seal engravings. The date alloted to this votive container and engravings are fifteenth fourteenth century BC.

(vi) Three iron nails and a stake, four potsherds and one little container of iron were dated sixteenth fifteenth century BC showing constrained utilization of iron.

In this manner, conclusions touched base at in the wake of doing these submerged archeological investigations bolster and approve the dates landed at through galactic counts. These additionally demonstrate that the reproduced city of Dwarka was a prosperous port town and that it was in presence for around 60-70 years in the fifteenth century BC before being submerged under the ocean in the year 1443 BC.artist's perspective in view of marine archeological reports and sumerged divider Other Archeological unearthings - Most of the urban communities alluded to in Mahabharata e.g.Mathura, Hastinapur, Indraprastha, Kurukshetra and Dwarka were arranged in the domains which are at present known as Haryana, Punjab, Delhi, UP, Rajasthan and Gujarat.

Broad unearthings completed in these regions have demonstrated that Indus Civilisation prospered in these territories between 3400-1500 BC. The unearthings completed in Lothal in Gujarat have demonstrated the presence of extremely propelled civilisation between 2300 BC to 1600 BC. The town was partitioned into the dock, the arcopolis and the modern, business, private segments. Ancient rarities recouped incorporate gold adornments and copper utensils. Archeological overviews at Kalibhangan in Rajasthan have distinguished the presence of an arranged braced city between 2500-1700 BC. Ancient rarities unearthed incorporate prepared blocks, semi valuable stones, copper and bronze articles. Photos taken by American earth-detecting satellite known as Landsat have affirmed that the waterway Saraswati depicted in the Rigveda as spilling out of the "mountain to the ocean" was in fact an incredible stream before 2000 BC. Archeological investigations on the old beds of the Saraswati e.g. at Kunal close Kurukshetra and at Banawali in Punjab have affirmed the presence of exceedingly propelled civilisation amid 3400-1500 BC. Ancient rarities unearthed incorporate silver gems and articles made of copper and bronze.

Taken in general archeological unearthings build up the persistent development of Sindhu-Saraswati civilisation between 3400-1500 BC coming full circle in the Mahabharata period. The occupants of all the unearthed places had comparative ethnic components, talked comparative dialects, took after comparative religious rituals which were vedic in nature, thought about stallion and rice, had propelled information of science, made broad utilization of copper and had found the utilization of iron. These revelations match with the subtle elements in the Epic as likewise with the conviction of the students of history that the utilization of iron was found in India in sixteenth century BC. The War of Mahabharata went about as a watershed, putting a conclusion to the 'copper age' and introducing the 'iron age' in fifteenth century BC. Archeological unearthings hence bolster the conclusion that Mahabharata War was battled in 1478 BC.

Endeavors have additionally been made to decide the year of Mahabharata War from the points of interest accessible in sacred texts and old writings which incorporate Puranas. At the point when occasions are unrecorded for a long while and they are gone on to the succeeding eras through Shruti and Smriti customs, the errors and myths get blended with reality by virtue of contrasts in the view of various people. Be that as it may, it is for the target discerning individual personality to discover and separate truths from fictions. Imperative informations, including the family history diagrams of rulers after Yudhishtira, are accessible in Srimad Bhagvatam, Matsya Puran and Vayu Purana. On the premise of such proof, well known student of history Lord Cunningham alloted the year 1424 BC to the War of Mahabharata. Another student of history Shri S.B.Roy in his work 'Date of Mahabharata Battle' additionally landed at the same conclusion by joining the abstract and the galactic course.

All these are vital bits of confirmation which demonstrate that epic Mahabharata is not just a myth but rather is history and its focal character Shri Krishna was a man with additional normal capacities, around whom legends were worked throughout the years. The regular man began having confidence in the godliness of this Supreme Hero, who for them is God incarnate.

In the wake of knowing this, there can be undoubtedly in the psyche of any sound individual that what has been taught to us in our school history books is not all right. According to our history books, Aryans came to India from Central Asia in their war Chariots in fifteenth century BC. They vanquished and pulverized the locals who were "native savages". By hypothesis both the Vedas and the Sanskrit dialect were brought into India by these Aryan trespassers. The most compelling defenders of this hypothesis were Max Muller and William Jones who were etymologists and they touched base at this conclusion on being struck by the affinities in the middle of Sanskrit and European dialects. This hypothesis is not upheld by any archeological, physical or exploratory proof. At the point when along these lines archeological unearthings at more than 1100 destinations scattered all over real parts of India demonstrated certain the presence of thriving Indus civilisation amid 3400 BC to 1500 BC then the advocates of Aryan attack hypothesis responded by recommending that the attacking Aryans had crushed the 'Dravidian occupants' of the Indus valley, minimum understanding that such hypothetical suspicion would change the character of attacking Aryans from bearers of civilisation to destroyers of incredible civilisation and society devaloped by the local Indians.

The four arrangements of proofs alluded to before guide more toward the likelihood that no one had come to India from Central Asia or from some other spot. Indeed, Indo-Aryan, rulers and warriors had come to Kurukshetra in their war Chariots from all over India to take part in the Mahabharata War and that a ton of individuals got murdered in that war. The executioners and also the murdered, the victors and additionally the vanquished, the charioteers and also the infantry, all were Indians who had effectively experienced a large number of years of prosperous and propelled civilisation. Archaic exploration additionally records a nonstop indigenous development of vedic civilisation backtracking to 5000 BC at destinations such as Mehrgarh and Koldi.

It is tragic that, so far we have not known even a portion about our antiquated civilisation and social accomplishments. Nitty gritty accurate information in our antiquated writings and sanskrit original copies is enticing us to do further examines. By making utilization of most cutting edge investigative instruments and strategies we should find the genuine realities about our most antiquated past. On the off chance that we do that, we might have the capacity to assemble steady confirmations to reassert that our own was the most seasoned civilisation on the planet that thrived in India and that our predecessors i.e. vedic Aryans had made a trip from India to different parts of Asia and Europe to spread our insight, civilisation and society. At the point when this is recorded we would have the capacity to hold our heads higher and will be capable tos tackle the future with more noteworthy certainty.
