7 Wonders of India: Dwarkadhish Temple

Located at Jamnagar District, Gujarat, it has a five-storey tower and the temple is made of limestone and sand. There are two gateways: Swarga Dwar for entry and Moksha Dwar for exit. From the temple, one can view the Sangam (confluence) of River Gomati flowing towards the sea. The temple was built by Sambha, the grandson of Lord Sri Krishna. The city is believed to have been built by Vishwakarma, who was a celestial architect in Hinduism. Dwarka is considered to be one of the holiest cities in Hindu culture and one of the four main dhams along with Badrinath, Puri and Rameshwaram. The city is especially respected by Vaishnavas.
