The culturally and aesthetically vibrant land of Gujarat offers two of the greatest pilgrimages in India – Dwaraka and Somnath. While Dwaraka revels in having once been under Lord Krishna’s kingship, Somnath prides itself on bearing the first of the twelve Jyotirlingas. Pilgrimages to the western shores of India are incomplete without visiting the most sacred of abodes of Divinity at Dwaraka and Somnath. The flag bearing the emblems of sun and moon that fly high from the zenith of the holy temple at Dwaraka bears testimony to the belief that Lord Krishna’s essence wouldn’t deprive the land till Sun and Moon exists. The ancient temple at Somnath provides the sacred container to hold Lord Shiva’s immaculate form in Jyotirlinga. Visit these sacred shrines upon seashores, and transport yourself truly into shores of Divinity whose resounding waves would bring you closer to your own truer self.
