The temple is located just 5 KMs from Veraval railway station, after getting down railway station, try any hotel that is nearer to the temple, take holy bath in the sagar(sea) and proceed to temple,the darshan timings are right from early morning,

You cannot but appreciate the grandeur of the temple as soon as your eyes falls on it. With the Arabian sea in the background. There is good arrangement outside for the visitors with toilets and locker facility to keep your luggage and belongings. One must spend some time meditating inside the temple to absorb the energies of the first Jyotirlinga.... More

One enters the complex through massive gate and a broad boulevard from a round about on the main road to Veraval. The place is crowded with usual pilgrimage associated activities and buildings. There are large Dharamshalas, Office... More

It is the most beautiful temple that i have ever visited. The atmosphere is just too good especially the sound of waves make you release your stresses. The temple is very clean, well managed and beautifully maintained.

A massive temple on the sea shore. You can here the sound of Arab Sagar striking to the walls of the temple. This temple is famous for the multiple attacks by Mahmud Ghazni. We reached to Somnath from Dwarika by car. Stay: We stayed at Lilavati Guest House. A good, clean and budget guest huse near the temple.

It is a magnificent temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples. It is located on the sea shore, The arrangements for darshan are good, though Security is a bother. There is an excellent Sound & Light Show at night

There is also a laser show in the evening in the gardens adjoining the temple. Allover this... More
