History of Dwarkadhish Temple

During the Moghal period, frequent invasions on temples, vandalism and arson were very common. The fanatics made the temple deities the first object of their mindless destination. The idol of Shri Dwarkadhishji, then in Gokul was exposed to this danger. There was every apprehension of damage to the temple and the deity’s idol. Goswami Shri Girdharji Maharaja therefore fled to Ahmedabad (Gujarat) and took the idol of the deity with him. There also the apprehension was no less. Then Maharana of Udaipur Shri Rajsingh ji dwarkadhish-in-nathdwararequested Shri Girdhar Maharaj and hence the idol was brought to Kankaroli where it was enshrined in a nearby village Asotiya, in Vikram Samvat 1726. When the temple on bank of Rajsamand had been completed, the idol was enshrined there in the temple.


Since this all happened in the times of Goswami Shri Girdharji, the building on the hill was named after him as Girdhar Garh. Since then Shri Dwarkadheeshji is enthroned there
