Rukmani Temple, Dwarka Overview

An ancient tale of separation, the Rukhmini Devi Temple is located about 1.5 km from the Dwarka city centre. This 12th-century remnant carries out some evident architectural marvels of the time through its mural carvings and other structures.

The Hindu mythical story behind this temple begins with Rukhmini Devi and her husband Lord Krishna, picking up the sage Durvesha for dinner. On the way, Rukhmini Devi stopped to quench her thirst at the Ganges, with the help of her husband.

Known to be short-tempered, Durvesha Muni was quite enraged when she did not offer him any water. Thus he summoned Rukhmini Devi to be separated from Lord Krishna. Therefore, her temple lies at the outskirts, while Lord Krishna's temple is within the Dwarka city.
