This is the main temple and very nicely managed. Locker rooms are available for the comfort. Leather items like belt , mobile not allowed. Don't miss the Light an Sound Show, Exhbition and Direction Marker to Antartica

Remember following items are not allowed in the premises - Mobile Phones, Cameras , Belts, Shoes , Car Keys with Remote control.... More

Just 45 kms awa from Sasan gid. Only a 45 min. away by Car. Excellent road. Not much crowd as it was exam season during March.

You feel proud to be an Indian while you visit the Somnath Temple - it is an inspiration that "Force" cannot destroy the "Beliefs". The temple authorities can make it more tourist friendly with basics like Camera/Phone being allowed & friendlier telescope staff.

Somnath, a divine and serene treat to your soul and eyes. I must say that there is nothing that I can criticize this place for. I went to Somnath Temple in the month of February for three days. We stayed in Hotel Sagar Darshan. Booking was done online through the temple’s website (7 days advance booking is a must).We asked... More

Excellent Monument ever seen. Visited Prachi teertha (sau baar Kashi Ek Baar Prachi) which is worth visiting. Bhalka Teertha, Triveni Sangam. On way to Dwaraka visited Mool Dwaraka and Harsiddi Mata Mandir. At Dwaraka, the Magnificent Dwarakadeesh Temple, Nageshwar Jotirlinga which is 10 Kms away from Dwaraka, Gopi Talao, Gayatri Mandir. It is a memorable trip to Somnath and Dwaraka.... More

Here we cannot touch Shri Somnathji and perform pooja. We have to get the rituals performed through the priests. And yet, just the sight of the Jyotirlinga gives one a feeling of peace and courage. It is an awesome feeling that a devotee of Shiva will understand very easily. From the point of a tourist, it is a magnificent temple... More

Temple is very beautiful and it is right on the sea shore, which adds to its beauty. It is maintained by Somnath Trust so unlike other temples, it is well maintained and no problem with Priests following you. A Light and Sound show which is played daily night, timing 1945-2045, is a must watch. It tells about the history of... More
