Moola Dwaraka

MOOLA DWARAKA : This is the place where Lord Krishna is said to have set foot first on arriving at Dwaraka.. But, he seems to have forsaken this place and moved to Bhet Dwaraka. The place looks really 'God-forsaken' !. It is near KODINAR from where one has to travel in an open air, overcroeded jeep upto a point and then walk up through the dry, dusty footpath leading to the Ambuja Cement factory. Atop a yonder mound stands a small dilapidated mud enclosure with a stone slab put in place and said to represent the spot where Lord Krishna set foot and hence called ' Moola Dwaraka '. There is a solitary priest who rarely attends the sanctum !.
