The Krishna Temple in Beyt Dwarka is said to be a 500 year old temple. In order to reach Beyt Dwarka, one must reach the Okha Port Jetty and from there take a boat to reach Beyt which lies at about 5 km distance.

The age old shrine is said to be built by Vallabhacharya and houses in its sanctum an idol known to be made by Rukmini herself. There is a famous legend that says Krishna's loyal friend Sudhama during his visit to Dwaraka gifted the lord with beaten rice for he could not afford to offer anything else to the lord. Devotees and visitors to the temple gift Brahmins in the locality with beaten rice even to this day.
