Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Mumbai

Upon reaching Mumbai, settle into your preferred hotel in the city. Take a moment to refresh and prepare yourself for the adventures that lie ahead. As evening descends, indulge in a delectable dinner before retiring for the day.

Day 2: Arrival in Ahmedabad – Welcome to Dwarka

Your excursion with us begins in Ahmedabad. Upon arriving at the Ahmedabad Railway Station or Airport, our tour representative will warmly greet you. We’ll then whisk you away to Dwarka, where you’ll have the chance to visit the revered Dwarkadhish Temple. This sacred site holds immense significance in Hinduism, as it is believed to have been established by Lord Krishna, who made this coastal town his capital. The marine excavations surrounding Dwarka have revealed evidence of Krishna Lila and Dwarawati. However, Dwarka is not only a spiritual haven but also a holiday destination boasting stunning beaches and captivating sightseeing spots. Don’t miss the Sabha Mandap, a 60-pillared hall adorned with ancient scriptures dating back nearly 2500 years. From here, you can marvel at the serene beauty of the flowing Gomati River. Witness the evening Aarti at Dwarkadhish Temple before returning to your accommodation for a restful overnight stay.

Day 3: Exploring Dwarka’s Spiritual Gems

The second day is dedicated to exploring Dwarka’s religious sites, including Nageshwar Temple and Bet Dwarka. From Dwarka, we’ll journey to Bet via Okha using the roadways. Situated about 30 km from Dwarka, Bet is surrounded by the sea on almost all sides. To reach Bet, you’ll enjoy a short sea journey on a small boat or launch from the Okha Port Jetty. Nageshwar Temple, also known as Nagnath Temple, enshrines the Jyotirlinga called Nageshwar Mahadev, attracting countless devotees from around the world. The Jyotirlinga symbolizes protection from the toxic effects of poison, and it is believed that a visit to this shrine grants immunity to poison. The famous Rukmini Temple, constructed in honor of Princess Rukmani who eloped with Lord Krishna, awaits your exploration. Gopi Talav, where Lord Krishna used to play with the Gopikas, is another intriguing site. Rest for the night in Dwarka.

Day 4: From Dwarka to Somnath

Rise early to attend the morning Aarti at Dwarkadhish Temple before embarking on your journey via Porbandar. Porbandar, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi, sits on the Saurashtra region’s peninsula, bordered by the Arabian Sea. Here, you can explore the finest silk and cotton fabrics. Visit the famous Kirti Mandir, once the residence of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, and his wife, Kasturba Gandhi. Proceed to the Shiva-abode, Somnath City, renowned for housing one of the most significant Jyotirlingas among the 12 sacred Lingas in the country. This ancient temple stands as a prominent Shiva site. As time permits, discover the nearby Rudreshwar Temple, and then journey to Bhalka Tirth, situated along the route to Somnath and Veraval. This sacred site holds intriguing myths surrounding its origin. Retreat to Somnath for an overnight stay, as there are no accommodations available at this site.

Day 5: Somnath to Ahmedabad

Today, we head to Ahmedabad, the next destination on our journey. Established around 1411 AD, Ahmedabad rests on the banks of the Sabarmati River and takes its name from the great ruler Sultan Ahmed Shah. Despite Gandhinagar now serving as the state’s capital, Ahmedabad remains renowned as the “Manchester of the East” due to its rapid industrial growth and status as India’s textile city. The city boasts numerous wooden mansions and Havelis, showcasing a blend of Hindu and Muslim architectural styles. After exploring the sites mentioned in our itinerary, we return to Ahmedabad for a sumptuous dinner and a relaxing overnight stay.
