A temple belongs to the Chalukya style of art, Dwarakadeesh temple possesses a long history of 2500 years. As the name suggests the presiding deity is none other than Lord Krishna. It is indeed a monument with superb artistic expressions. A five storied main shrine supported by 60 roof columns is the main attraction of this grand structure. Lord Krishna in his black idol appears so beautiful and appealing that the devotee feels the presence of the lord before him.

Other shrines are dedicated to Sathybhama Devi, Subhadra, Balarama and Revathy, Jambavathi Devi, Vasudeva, Rukmini Devi and Devaki. Rich carvings and complicated structural designs of the temple amuse each visitor with its elegant appeal.

The devotees are required to take a dip at the Gomti river before entering to the temple through Swarg Dwar. Here one has to climb 56 steps, which represents the 52 Yadava administrative divisions and their four gods. Temple is open to the devotees between 7 am to12.30 pm and 5.00 to9.30 pm. The Vedpathsaala run by the Sharada Vidyapeeth in the temple premises is the other important place to be visited while in the temple. On the eve of Janmashtami, the temple gets a spectacular look when the whole ambience displays a festive mood.
