Dwarka Somnath tourism

Somnath Temple in Dwarka represents one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. The word Somnath refers to the protector of Moon God. This temple is situated in Prabhas Kshetra near Veraval, which is located along the western coast of Gujarat.The Somnath temple have been destroyed six times and rebuilt six times. Thus, the temple is also known as 'The Shrine Eternal'. It is believed that Soma or the Moon God built this temple in gold, the demon king Ravana built it in silver and Lord Krishna built it in wood.


The final reconstruction of the temple started in November 1947, under the leadership of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. This temple is built in the famous Chalukya architectural style or Kailash Mahameru Prasad style, which is a clear reflection of the Sompura Salats skills. Lord Shiva was so pleased by the prayers of Moon God that He decided to rest in this temple as a Jyotirlinga for eternity. Dwarka is around 230 kms from Somnath by road NH8E. There is no other means of transport apart from road and there is one way to go there. The whole road is besides sea and you will rejoice travelling by this road NH8E . Between Somnath and Dwarka comes Porbander city around 130 kms from Somnath, the birth place of Mahatma Gandhi.Jay Somnath…………………


The whole road is fantastic apart from few streches. The whole journey will be airy besides sea , wind moves and you will find lot of windmills from Suzlon energy. There may be many means to go from Somnath to Dwarka , but as far as I know. You can go by a ) Luxury bus b) Gujarat State Transport c) private cars.

Somnath to Dwarka Coastal Road

Gujarat State Transport buses  have a very good frequency toDwarka from Somnath . Morning time :- 6.30 am and then at 9.00 am . I don’t know after this. But it is good to start in morning because it take around 7.00 hours to reach Dwarka. Fare :- Rs. 135 . Second one are Luxury Buses , where they charge around Rs. 170 but in between they show us three temples. a) Narvai Mata Temple b) Mool Dwarka  मूल द्वारका ( original Dwarka) and c) Harshad Mata.

After beautiful cold and windy journey of around two and half hours just few kms before Porbander we stopped at Narvai Mata temple. This was our first darshan as well as breakfast joint as well. Here there is no village just large temple on the road. Idon’t know anything about the legend but vibrations in this temple are fabulous.Jay Dwarkadhish…………….



ORIGINATION OF GOLDEN DWARKA CITY

After few kms away from Porbander comes Mool Dwarka :- Mool means original from root. This was actually the place where Lord Krishna first came leaving Mathura. Legend is that after killing Kansa , Jarasandha became Lord Krishna’s prior enemy. He attacked Mathura 17 times and every time he was defeated by Lord Krishna and Lord Balarama.Finally it was decided by Lord that he will create new city which will defend from the enemy naturally . That was the formation of Dwarka. While Dwarka was made by Lord Vishwakarma, God of Architecture, at that time again Jarasandha attacked Mathura along with yavan king Kaalyavan. Kaalyavan was the king who had boon that he cannot be killed by any weapon.So Lord Krishna tricked him. He asked Kaalyavan for one to one fight and that to away from both the armies.

  They went in a lonely place. Then instead of fighting Lord Krishna ran away teasing Kaalyavan. Kaalyavan got infuriated and chased Lord Krishna telling him Rannchhod ( Rann :- Battlefield, Chhod :- leave) . It ws this time that Lord got this name. And then Lord went to the cave near Jungadh called Muchkund cave. Here King Muchkund was sleeping. He had a boon from all devtas that he will remain asleep for long time and whoever tries to wake him up will be smeared into ashes. Lord Krishna put his ward robe on King Muchkund and hid inside and Kaalyavan thinking him to be Lord Krishan hit him. This woke up King Muchkund and when he saw Kaalyavan he was smeared into ashes. Thus again winning the battle tactically.
