Dwarka Dham or Sharda Math?
Dwarka, located in the west of India, is located in the state of Gujarat. The word *Dwar* The name of the city is derived from the Sanskrit language door, where the Gomti River merges into the Arabian Sea, where this confluence is located. Dwarka is considered to be the abode of Bhagwan Shri Krishna. It was settled by Bhagwan Shri Krishna in Dwapar Yuga after coming from his birthplace Mathura.

According to Adi Guru Shankaracharya, Dwarka has been named as Sharda Math. The adjective Tirtha or Ashram is placed behind the name of the Sanyasis who receive initiation under Sharda Math. The Mahavakya of this Math is Tattvamasi and the Veda that comes under it is Samaveda. The First Mathadhish of Sharda Math was Hastamalak ji (Prithvidhar). Hastamalak ji was one of the main four disciples of Adi Shankaracharya.
