About The Rukmini Devi Temple, Dwarka, Gujarat

The Rukmini Devi Temple is a sanctuary in Dwarka, 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) away from Dwarka, Gujarat, India. It is committed to Goddess Rukmini (ruler Krishna’s main sovereign and the manifestation of Devi Lakshmi in Dwapara yuga). The sanctuary is supposed to be 2,500 years of age yet in its current structure it is induced to have a place with the twelfth century.

It is famous temple in Dwarka for its great architectural exquisiteness and magnificence, chiefly the pictures of her life with the Bhagwaan dating back to 12th century.

History and Legend :

An intriguing legend is described to legitimise separate dwelling sanctuaries, far away from one another, for Rukmini and her better half Krishna. It is said that in line with sage Durvasa (who was prestigious for his irritability and giving condemnations) Krishna and Rukmini pulled a chariot taking sage Durvasa to their home for supper. Coming, when Rukmini requested water to extinguish her thirst, Krishna drew Ganges water, by pushing the ground with his toe, for her to drink. Rukmini extinguished her thirst with the Ganges water. However, Durvasa felt offended as Rukmini didn’t have the politeness to bring to the table him water to drink. He, in this way, reviled her that she would live independently from her husband.
