I know it is a different review among such good reviews. But really it was such a horrible experience. Temple is well maintained and clean. But place is highly mismanaged. Security officials were pretty rude and misbehaving with devotees. It looks they were doing some favour to devotees by allowing them to enter into premises. Amazing view, cool breeze coming... More

Visited temple near to closure in the night and found it soothing. Sea waves gently lap the wall. Sound and light show is a must watch

First of all no one has the authority to rate a jyotirlinga .... My rating is for ease to reach and other infrastructural things. Somnath temple is the the first among the twelve Jyotirlinga shrines. This legendary temple has been destroyed and rebuilt several times by Islamic kings and Hindu kings respectively Got this opportunity to visit the temple during... More

Historically I had mixed experiences while visiting Hindu temples. Sometimes the temple is too crowded, sometimes it is dirty. But somnath temple was completely opposite. Very well maintained and administered temple with beautiful setting. Temple is just on the bank of sea, sea view will rival many resorts.

I visited this beautiful temple with my parents on a warm July day, interspersed with drizzle, making the whole atmosphere very soothing and serene. The view of... More

Not many temples have a gallery speaking its records. Well this has, and it speaks about the ruins collected decades back, for an ancient temple of centuries worth. Re-built by Sardar Patel, the current structure also is very mesmerizing, Do get inside during the "Aratees" to feel the real aura of this place. Also, look for a man near the... More
