Shree Dwarkadhish Gopal Mandir - Ujjain

Gopal temple at Ujjain is dedicated to Lord Krishna in blue form. Lord Krishna is the lover of milkmaids, the celestial herdsman and the great incarnation of Preserver of the Universe-God Vishnu.

Gopal temple was constructed in the 19th century by Bayajibai Shinde. The steeple structure in Marble proves the fantabulous example of the architecture of Maratha. There is an outstanding statue of God Krishna in silver form with the height of 2 feet. The idol of God Krishna is placed on a marble-inlaid altar with the silver-plated doors.

This silver door was stolen away by Mahmud Ghazni from the Somnath Temple and then it was again taken away to Lahore by Mahmud Shah Abdali-The Afghan invader. Then it was recovered by Mahadji Scindia and it has been installed now in Gopal temple.

Gopal Mandir
Gopal Temple is dedicated to the blue god Krishna who is the divine
herdsman, the lover of milkmaids and the eighth incarnation of Lord
Vishnu, the Preserver of the Universe. The marble-spired structure is
an excellent example of Maratha architecture.
