Things to doGo through the ancient artifacts here.
One is said to have not completed his or her pilgrimage in the city of Dwarka if they do not make a visit to the famous tourist destination called Beyt Dwarka. This is yet another one of the many Hindu temples in the state of Gujarat and is situated on an island off the coast of western India. The establishment of this structure dates way back into the 19th century and is comprised of a number of shrines and houses images of the Hindu God Lord Krishna along with his 56 consorts. The temple also houses some relics and artifacts that were unearthed during the excavation at Harappa. These items are believed to be from the Harappan Civilization and date back to the 2ne millennium B.C.

Bet – Dwarka
7. Bet Dwarka, GujaratThe island of Bet Dwarka is considered to be a part of the ancient city of Dvaraka mentioned in the epic of Mahabharata. If you are not a believer in mythology then Bet Dwarka also has evidences of being a prime trade route between ancient Rome and India. The existence of settlements on this island dates back to the Harappan period of the Indus Valley civilisation.Except many religious sites, Bet Dwarka is surrounded by scenic beaches. The southernmost point is called Dunny Point, which is surrounded by sea on all three sides.How to reach: You can easily take a ferry from Okha. Nearest city from Okha is Jamnagar.

1. Religious trip to one of the Char dham (Dwarka Temple) 2. A day trip to Bhet dwarka and nearby temples ( one day trip is arranged locally)
A small temple set on an island a little way into the sea.
The amazing boat ride around sunset along with the sea gulls, is an experience by itself!
Situated at a short distance from Dwarka, Bet Dwarka is a small island with several ancient temples. The ride to Bet Dwarka from Dwarka is fun-filled and full of excitement as one can reach the place either through motor boat or rowing boat. Take your camera along to catch a glimpse of rare and beautiful birds while sailing through the sea. The east end of the island has an excellent beach with extensive water plants and animals. The beach is not much visited, and is, therefore, an excellent place to get away from the bustle of the city life.
