Visit Dwarkadhish temple

This temple is the main tourist attraction in Dwarika, and it’s not hard to see why. The walls are covered with meticulously beautiful carvings. However, the sad part is one cannot take pictures as mobile phones and camera are not allowed inside the temple.

Chill by the beach in Dwarka

Once done with the temple, you can visit Dwarika beach which is just 5minutes away from your first destination. Relax under the sun in the evening time, and it will feel like you’re having the best time of your life.
