Dwarkadhish Temple - Mathura India

This temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna. A staunch and wealthy devotee, Seth Gokuldas Parikh, built it with lots of enchanting paintings and beautiful carvings. During the festivals of Holi, Janmashtami and Diwali, this temple is decorated gorgeously.

Mathura is famous for it's Dwarakadish temple. A highlight of the temple is the 19th century Shikara tower. The multi-pillared Sabha Mandapa leads to a 60-pillared sanctum. Incredibly detailed sculpture decorates the entire temple. The ancient Dwarkadish temple or Jagat Mandir has often been renovated.

The mention of Dwarka also brings to mind the great saint Mirabai, a devotee of Lord Krishna. It was here that she practiced Bhakti yoga and composed poems for Lord Krishna and it is this, which has infused the temple with the power of love. 

 

Lord Krishna is worshipped by many names by his devotees all over the world and is considered to be the supreme personality by the Vaishnavaites. He is often worshipped as a deity in the form of a small crawling baby, or with his consort Radha, or as a smiling Deity playing the flute.
