Rukmini Mandir

, Dwarka

Though a small structure, Rukmini Mandir is an important shrine and it is dedicated to the most beloved consort of Krishna, Devi Rukmini. A masterpiece in artistic terms, this temple makes the beholder spell bound. Its highly embellished walls and rich carvings are simply superb. The rich paintings in the walls of this 12th century temple portray Rukmini’s pastimes with her husband.

Like all other significant shrines in India this temple also tells a lovely tale to its visitors. One day, Krishna and his wife, Rukmini, invited Durvasa Muni, for dinner. It is a customary practice that the host refrains from eating till the guest is duly satisfied with the services. However, during the dinner Rukmini became thirsty and she took water with out seeking the permission of her guest. This made Durvasa angry and he cursed Rukmini. This is the reason why Rukmini is placed away from the Krishna temple in the city.
