All of us have grown hearing to the tales of Little Krishna. The miracles he performed surely make us his devotees. The devotion, or call it curiosity, is sure to drag devotees and followers to his land Dwaraka in Gujarat.
Dwaraka is also popularly known as Devbhoomi or also Krishna Nagari. Legend explains that Krishna built this land of Dwaraka for his people and moved along with them from Mathura to save them all from the wrath of Jarasandha.
Krishna Avatara and all his work is believed to have happened 5000 years ago. Devotees flock in to his land in large numbers even today in this century.
People from all class and categories visit Dwaraka, considering the place to be holy and one of the important pilgrim centres. This fact gives rise to the demand of good hotels in and around the place.
