The Dwaraka pīţha or Dwaraka maţha is situated in the coastal city of Dwaraka, Gujaratmarker — which itself is a popular destination of pilgrimage for the Hindus, dedicated to Krishna. It is one of the four cardinal maţhas said to have been founded by Adi Sankaracarya, and is the pascimāmnāya matha, or western matha. It is also known as the Kālikā Matha, and, as per the tradition initiated by Adi Shankara, is in charge of the Sama Veda.

The current head or Shankaracharya of this order is Swami Svarūpānanda Sarasvatī, who is also the head of the corresponding northern matha at Jyotirmathmarker.
