Its a very nice temple. You have to put every thing outside to enter into the temple. There is a beautiful beach near the temple. Just take a walk, its very nice. I found very interesting natural design in the sea shore...You can buy things but be careful...

Being one of the 12 - Jyotirling it's a holy place. This is perhaps the most easiest Jyotirling to visit. as no climbing , no crossing of River or Mountains. The temple built in white marble is superb and gives additional glory. The Beach behind is spectacular and entire place is very relaxinig and mind blowing.

This temple though was build later but is very well planned and well managed. The aarti was great but the best part was light and sound. The great heritage and history of Somnath temple is narrated in light and sound with the background sound of waves of sea. The experience is simple mesmerizing.

The temple and the sea behind is breath taking. The Darshan itself is invigorating and seeker of Peace surely will get it here.

Each time it was rebuilt and the present temple was built from ruins by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel post independence.The temple is on the seashore and is very well laid... More
