Rukshamanee Mandir is dedicated to the beloved wife of Lord Krishna, Devi Rukmani. Among all His 16,108 wives, Devi Rukmani was Lord Krishna’s favourite. The Rukshamanee Mandir, which is also known as Rukmani Temple, features varied paintings of the 12th century on its walls. These paintings capture the time spent by Lord Krishna and Devi Rukmani. The temple is situated about 1.5 km from the main town, on the Okha highway. It is located on the banks of Bhagirathi River, which can be seen while travelling to Beyt Dwarka. The Mandir comprises a beautiful marble deity of Devi Rukmani, with four hands or Chaturbhuja. These four hands hold Shanka, Chakra, Gada and Padma, which symbolise her being reincarnation of Goddess Maha Lakshmi. Due to the curse spelled by Rishi Durvasa to Devi Rukmani, this Rukshamanee Mandir is placed away from the main Dwarkadish Temple in the town. Tourists can travel to this temple by local buses, auto rickshaws or by foot.
