The Damodarji Temple is situated at the foot hills of Ashwathama hills in Junagadh. Believed to be built by Lord Krishna's heir, Vajranabha, this temple is considered to be one of the largest shrines dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
Covering an area of 32 acres, the temple is constructed using pink sand stone and comprises of an inner Nij Mandir and an outer Solaha Mandapa, supported by an array of around 84 exquisitely carved pillars.
The statue of Damordarji is found in the form of Chaturbhuj, each arm holding a conch, discus, mace and lotus, along with Sri Radha Rani. Both the idols are sculpted from black stone and are heavily decorated with gold and silk. There are other sub shrines dedicated to Lord Balarama, Sri Revathi and Lord Ganesha. Devotees are seen taking a holy dip in the sacred bathing tank, Damodar Kund, before offering prayers at the temple. Another sacred tank known as Revathi kund is located nearby.
The best time to visit is during the Patoustsav of Damodarji, celebrated with zeal and enthusiasm, in the Hindu month of Jeth (mid-May to mid-June).
Located at the outskirts of Gujarat, Damodarji Temple is easily reachable.
