It is special because there may not be other exclusive temples for Rukmini. Hence has puranic/historic value. Otherwise, it is just another temple. One has a chance to donate for drinking water for the locals in this temple.

very beautiful Place, and legend says that Lord Krishna and Rukmini will not have a temple where they both will be placed, and they will be kept apart in Dwarka

The idol is of white marble (not black granite) and is continuously washed with water, donated by devotees. The priests are a nuisance and a loud distraction from the sanctity... More

Idol of Rukmini is worshiped and depending on crowd, the priest summarizes a short narrative of temple legends and also about various donations for devotees. Photography is prohibited inside the sanctum, however outside one can marvel at exquisite stone carvings and capture the timeless moments in frames. Shoes, leather belts & likes are not... More

This temple close to Dwaraka is one with the idol of Rukhmani is seen. But it has a narrow entrance and it could be better maintained. also the pujaris make announcements over a mike which is blaring and irritating.
