Gopi Talav or the Gopi Tank is a small pond surrounded by sandal like yellow sand, known as Gopi Chandan. This Chandan is used by devotees of Lord Krishna to make tilak marks on their bodies. The Talav has a special significance in the Hindu mythology, as it is believed to be the place where gopis came to see Lord Krishna in Dwarka. It is believed that Lord Krishna killed a demon named Bhaumasura and freed 16,000 princesses from his palace at this site. This site got its name as Gopi Talav after the Gopi princesses, who fell in love with Lord Krishna and wanted to marry him. Gopi Talav is located just 20 km north of Dwarka and 5 km from the Nageshwara Jyotirlinga Temple. This sacred pond is situated on the route to Beyt Dwarka from the main town. Local transportation like buses and auto rickshaws are available from the town for visiting this site.
