Among 12 jyotirlingas, Somnath comes first. This place is very unique as its on shore of Arabian sea. The sea is very attractive. The wind gives you refreshing also put you on spiritual mode. The combination of Shiva and sea is very much exhilarating. This experience can not be elaborated in words. Rameshwaram is also at Sea but you can... More

You need to remove footwear before entry and there is about 200 metres walk to enter the temple. They don't allow cameras or mobile phones inside, which you have to deposit at a place which is further away than the footwear stand (about 300 metres from temple) - hence deposit cameras first. Also buy bottled (and sealed) water before you... More

The present temple was built after independence at the initiative of Sardar Patel. The temple is really Grand and the noon aarti is the highlight. The light & sound programme in the evening is not to... More

Visited Somnath temple which located close to Veraval in Jan 2016. The temple is surrounded by arabian sea, a mesmerising view!!! Visited the temple around 11 am and it was not much crowded , so the darshan was quick. The temple is clean and well maintained. The security check does not permit to carry electronic gadgets (even battery operated car... More

Haven't seen any temple with such a beautiful backdrop. The temple is obviously beautiful and clean. As no mobiles, flowers, coconuts or personal items are allowed inside, it's well maintained. The main reason to visit is the view that you can see from here. The entire ocean is right there with clear waters. Go at the time of sunset and... More
