History

Mul Dwarka (Kodinar), A Small Coastal Village Near Kodinar In The District Of GIR SOMNATH, Gujarat State Is One Of The Three Claimants Of The Original Dwarka Of Mahabharata. The Proximity With Hills On The North And Sea On The South The Town Has Been Associated With All Three Dwarkas (Sankalia, 1966). Lord Sri Krishna And Lord Balarama Are Supposed To Have Stayed Here For Sometime Before Moving To Dwarka.The Remains Of Ancient Port Of Mul Dwarka Have Been Much Destroyed Due To The Construction Of Cement Jetty. A Tidal River, Blocked By A Sand-Bar That May Be Caused By A Cement Jetty, Flows On The Western Side Of Mul Dwarka Village.

Archaeological Findings From Mul Dwarka Suggest That This Area Was An Ancient Settlement. Discovery Of A Composite Stone Anchor And Report On Some Grapnel Type Anchors From Mul Dwarka Support The View That This Was An Active Port In Medieval Period And Earlier. The Artifacts Found In And Around This Place Date Back To The 10th Century Ad And Older As Far Back To The Ages Of Harappan And Late Harappan Settlements.

An Ancient Temple Of Lord Shree Krishna Is Situated On A Raised Land Close To The Sea. This Small Temple Is In A Dilapidated Condition. The Shrine Is Dated To The Post 10th Century Ad (Sampura, 1968). And The Gujarat Government Is Planning A Massive Renovation Of This Temple Complex. Kusheshwara Mahadev Temple Or Siddheshwar Mahadev Temple, Bheedbhanjan Mahadev Temple And Khodiyar Mataji Temple Are Located Nearby.

A Circular Structure Of About 4 M In Height, Dating Back To 12th–15th Century Ad, Constructed With Similar Type Of Dressed Limestone Blocks As Of The Temple In Situated Close To Ancient Temple. Locally This Structure Is Called As Diva Dandi (Lighthouse). If Indeed This Structure Had Served As Lighthouse Then This May Be The Oldest Remains Of Lighthouse On The Saurashtra Coast.
