One of the finest temple I have ever seen in my life. A large structure to mesmerize and the presence of the divine power of lord Shiva will touch your soul. one of the best part of this temple is the view of the sea from temple's campus boundary. Seriously the time will pass so quickly without even noticing. Cameras... More

Somnath Mahadev temple is on a small hillock. On one side and back of it is Arabian sea. Quite well maintained, clean. The tourists are not unduly pressurised to perform pooja. There is a counter where different types of puja are mentioned along with the price at which they can be performed. The light and sound shoe in the evening... More

Amazing temple that i have seen in my life. It was situated at bank of sea and looking at sunset was very good while sitting at the back of temple. At the evening there was a lighting show which was telling its complete story. Camera and phones were not allowed inside it.

We made a day trip to Somnath Temple from Sasan Gir village. The trip was easy enough. We took the local bus to Veraval and then an auto-rickshaw to the temple. Unfortunately, the temple and the beach area nearby were not at all worth the time we invested into the trip. The temple was average at best. We had seen... More

One of best managed temples in India. Beautifully built and maintained. Light and sound show is worth a watch though not very great.
