The temple is built beautifully. The place is mostly clean and well organized. Unlike many other religious places, no one will bother you for donations

I have never seen a better place to visit. The seaside and breeze blowing would make your mood fresh and the aarti of lord Somnath was majestic. We also saw the light and sound program which told us about the history of the temple.

located at somnath, its first jyotirling among 12. One can have superb view from temple as sea is just behind the temple. The old temple is also near to the main temple and one should go to worship at old temple also while visiting there. Morning Aarti is very good at new temple (recommended).

Very beautiful and well maintained by the temple trust. Darshan & Pooja are very well organized by the temple trust. You can feel the positive vibrations inside the temple. It is advisable to wear full pants. No leather item or camera/mobile are allowed inside the premises.

First of jyotrling's darshan gives immense peace to mind. No land between temple and south pole. History says it was destroyed many times. I had previlege of watching aarti. Faith in spirit of people won against destroyers. Many facilities are added. Light and sound show impressive but still there is scope of introducing latest technology. People from north east south...

It is in Veraval near to seashore and it is one of the important siva temples in India. From Ahmedabad you have to travel some 10 hours to reach the place. Accommodations are availale everywhere....
