A Travel Guide To Joshimath

Shrine of Meerabai, Dwarka


Dedicated to Meerabai, a religious Hindu singer and a staunch devotee of Lord Krishna, this little temple lies in a residential locality close to the Jagat Mandir. Born and brought up in a Royal family, it is said that the lady was married to a king of Rajasthan during the 16th century, but Meera was unhappy with her wedlock for she always considered herself the better half of Lord Krishna.

It is also said that Meerabai went on a pilgrimage and journeyed almost all parts of North India, before concluding the same at Dwarka and that with the power of her devotion, she infused into the idol of Lord Krishna at the Dwarakadhish Temple.
