A very well maintained temple and pujas conducted in an orderly fashion. Policemen ensure that the darshan is smooth .
Shri Somanath shrine is at Prabhas Patan in Gujarat (earlier in the part of Saurashtra) .The Mugals whoever invaded India looted the treasure in this temple and thereby it was destroyed and rebuilt six times. Now at present, on the sea shore, there are two temples close to each other at a little distance; one being old and the other... More
I was simply awestruck by the beauty of the temple by the sea. The temple and its campus is very nice and clean. Cameras, cellphones and any other electronic devices are strictly prohibited within the temple premises. This deprived me of taking some good snaps of the temple and its campus, but then it's charm is such that it is... More
Somnath experince was perhaps the best that i have ever had till date in my life in any temple. i felt elated the moment i enterd the temple and was surprised by enahnce emotion for which i was not prepared. You must attend the Aarti. try to avoid taking smal kids.
It's a grand temple at a beautiful location. The temple is heavily guarded.

You can enter the outer premises with these things but you can’t take them in the... More
Blessed to visit one of the finest and immaculately maintained temples of India on the picturesque Gujerat coastline. Extremely peaceful and mind refreshing environment.

Adequate and free reliable lockers available but the items have to be deposited a short walking... More

Excellent security. One should not carry Mobile (electronic items), leather belts, or any other baggage within the premises of the Temple. There are lockers (free of cost) available to store such items. Do not miss Light and Music show in the evening to learn about the history of the temple.
We are not very religious people. In fact,if possible,we avoid visiting temples,only because in India,many of them are dirty,with inadequate facilities of convenience & some times discriminatory.We visited Somnath Temple as a part of our Gir Forest trip.However,we were pleasantly surprised with Somnath Temple. It is precisely how a large temple should be. The temple has big approaching area, including... More
