Dakor is a city located in Kheda district and known for its grand temple of Shree Krishna (Shree Ranchhodraiji) which has a historical significance. It is believed that Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Mirabai visited this temple to pay homage to the Shree Krishna idol.
Once a sleepy village, it used to crackle with a large number of khakhra (Butea monosperma) trees and was therefore often called a ‘Khakhariu gaam’. Dakor is named after Rishi Dank who had his Ashram here. The Danknath Mahadev temple stands on the banks of Gomti Lake.
On purnima (full moon) every month, this temple town awakens to thousands of visitors in colorful festivity. Inspired by the revered legend of Bodana, many devotees even today come on foot from great distances. Dakor is also known for its lip-smacking gotas accompanied by tea or dahi (yogurt).
