Dvārakā, also known as Dvāravatī is a sacred historic city in Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. The name Dvaraka is said to have been given to the place by Bhagwan Krishna, a major deity in Hinduism.
In the Hindu epics and the Puranas, Dvaraka is called Dvaravati and is one of seven Tirtha (pilgrimage) sites for spiritual liberation. The other six are Mathura, Ayodhya, Kashi, Kanchipuram, Avantika (Ujjain) and Puri.
Together with Varanasi, it is considered to be one of the holiest places in India to Hindus, and part of the Char Dham pilgrimage. The Char Dham is a set of four pilgrimage sites ie. Badrinath, Dwaraka, Puri, and Rameswaram.
