'Beyt' in Gujarati means island hence the island in Dwarka is called 'Beyt Dwarka'. Around thirty two KM from the main Dwarka is the island called Bet Dwarka or Beyt Dwarka. One has to take a ferry boat from Okha port jetty to reach this island. The island is part of original Dwarka built by Sri Krishna and he had met his childhood friend Sri Sudama here. Therefore devotees call this place as 'Bet Dwarka' where 'bet' in Hindi meaning 'meeting'. Sri Vallabhacharya had established the temple here with the idol of Lord Sri Krishna worshiped by Rukmini Devi.
