Visit the dwelling place of Lord Krishna – Bet Dwarka, a small island and the erstwhile Kingdom of Dwarka. Visit the holy temples of Dwarkadish, Nageshwara and Somnath. Enjoy a guided sightseeing tour of Ahmedabad for its cultural attractions before returning home.
The Cultural Gujarat tour begins with your pick-up from pre-fixed point of departure. Enjoy the drive from Ahmedabad to Dwarka, an ancient city, once the abode of Lord Krishna and now a principal pilgrimage spot.

Bet Dwarka : Bet Dwarka is an island located some 30 kms from Dwarka. It can be accessed by a small boat or ferry.
Nageshwar Temple or Nagnath Temple is located on the route between Gomati Dwarka and the Bait Dwarka Island on the coast of Saurashtra in Gujarat. The Jyotirlinga enshrined in the Temple of Nagnath is known as NageshwarMahadev and attracts thousands of pilgrims all round the year. This powerful Jyotirlinga symbolizes protection from all poisons. It is said that those who pray to the NageshwarLinga become free of poison. The RudraSamhitasloka refers to Nageshwar with the phrase ‘DaarukaavaneNaagesham’.
