At a distance of 2 km from Dwarkadheesh Temple and 4 km from Dwarka Railway Station, Geeta Mandir is a Vaishnavaite temple on the Arabian Sea coast in Dwarka. It is one of the popular temples in Gujarat and one of the most renowned Dwarka places to visit.
Close to Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Mandir, Geeta Mandir was built by the industrialist family of Birla's in 1970 to protect the rich scripture, teachings and values of Bhagavad Gita. Built with marble, the structure of the temple is not only artistically elegant, but also has saintly feeling within the holy premises. One can find a beautiful idol of Lord Krishna in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple. There is also a Gita Stambh present in the temple. The high carved walls and the temple's ceilings depict the teaching and hymns of Bhagawad Gita.
Another specialty of this temple is the echo of one's voice. Accommodation facilities are also available within the temple for pilgrims to stay. There are small shops outside the Gita Mandir which sell flowers, sweets and other essential commodities required for the puja. The temple is decorated beautifully on the auspicious occasions of Janmasthami and Holi.
