There are 2 temples in Somnath. One new where Amitabh is seen standing and the old one where you can actually do Puja and feel a lot better. Dave Ansuman J (09428624962) was our pandit who helped us offer puja and did an excellent job. Thanks to him- that made us feel grateful to lord for having us there.

In recent years, many type of developmental and beautification work done in and around temple area. Vehicle are not allowed may be 500-600 meters away... More

What a place to be here. Witnessing Aarti is the best things you can do here. The temple has a gigantic view of the sea. You tend to sit here for hours and enjoy the breeze coming from the sea.

About 35 kms away from the resort, a very vibrant place but not many clean restaurants around so do carry some food and water along.
