My wife and I were blessed with an opportunity to have darshan of Somnath Mahadev Ling and then do pooja looking at the Ling. It was very organised and we were able to have our rudraksh and my wife's rudrani also blessed during the pooja. You need not be afraid of any pandas at this temple

The temple is in front of the sea. It has been destroyed thrice but nobody could destroy it completely. You can attend arati twice in a day. Mobile, camera or any electronic device is not allowed inside the temple.

Temple is good and well maintained by trust and especially for older person there is lift and seating arrangements are there. there is light and sound show in the temple in the evening, which is quite boring. otherwise very scenic and peaceful temple.

Like all Hindu temple too heavy on footfall add to it lots of hustle bustle still our myth is too strong to ignore these short comings. Beautiful located near the sea and majestic structure where connecting to God is just in thing.
