We visited Somnath in early December with family. We reached the temple around 730am. We missed the morning arati but it was a blessing in disguise as we didn't have to deal with huge crowds and the temple was relatively empty. We had lovely darshan. Spent time walking around the temple compound. Somnath trust has installed depictions of the 12... More

Aarti starts at 6:30 and it will be good for one to reach the temple by that time. Amazing atmosphere. Breath taking views outside the temple.

The legendary Somnath temple is easily amongst the five most beautiful temples in India for its sheer majestic facade and the sea shore location. The Shivling here is the first amongst the 12 powerful Jyotirlings and hence a power point amongst the pilgrimages. Finish your Darshan and just laze around the spacious temple complex in the lap of the beautiful... More

A must visit to Lord Shiva devotees and architecture candidates as this temple is an architectural marvel. Daily aarti is performed 3 times (7 AM, 12 noon and 7 PM). It is recommended to be in the queue atleast 30 mins before aarti time to... More
