The Dwarkadhish Temple location is in the city of Dwarka in Gujarat. It one of the Char Dham pilgrimages whcih have immense importance in Hinduism. Dwarka lies on the banks of river Gomti, in Saurashtra. It is historically considered as the capital of Lord Krishna. The city eventually submerged under the sea except for Temples.
Further, as per mythology, the story of how Krishna formed the city of Dwarka has two versions. One states that Lord Krishna flew on the Garuda and reached the Saurashtra peninsula. However, in the other version, Lord Krishna invoked Vishwakarma (Lord of Construction). He asked him to build a new city.
Vishwakarma said that it is possible to build the city if the Samudra Devta (God of Sea) gives them land. Lord Krishna worshiped the Sea God who eventually gave him 12 Yojanas of land. Consequently, Vishwakarma built the city of Dwarka for Lord Krishna (the Dwarkadhish Temple location).
