Heritage Tour in Dwarka

Archaeological excavations have uncovered underwater stone structures which have been described as showing settlement during proto-historic times. Evidence such as a stone block with Gujarati script, the way the stones were dressed showing that dowels had been used, and an examination of anchors found on the site suggest that the harbour site dates only to historical times, with some of the underwater structure being late Medieval. Coastal erosion was probably the cause of the destruction of what was an ancient port.

 

Dwarka  also spelled Dwarika, and Dwaraka, is a city and a municipality of Devbhoomi Dwarka district in the Gujarat state of India. Dwarka is one of the foremost Chardham four sacred Hindu pilgrimage sites, and is one of the Sapta Puri seven most ancient religious cities in the country. Dwarka is often identified with the Dwarka Kingdom, the ancient kingdom of Krishna and is believed to have been the first capital of Gujarat. The Dwarkadheesh Temple was built around 200 BCE and was enlarged in the 17th century. Prior to the reallocation

of the districts, this city was part of Jamnagar District.

 

Culture has always been a major object of travel, as the development of the Grand Tour from the 16th century onwards attests. In the 20th century, some people have claimed, culture ceased to be the objective of tourism: tourism is now culture. Cultural attractions
play an important role in tourism at all levels, from the global highlights of world culture to attractions that underpin local identities.
