About Gopnath

Gopnath, headquarter of the Bhavnagar District is located on the coast of Gulf of Khambhat. It is a getaway of the tourists visiting Bhavnagar during the summer month. Moreover, tourist interested in marine life can visit the location for the variety of marine life found there. The site is also known for the shrine of Gopnath Mahadev, where Narsingh Mehta, the devotional poet is believed to have gained his divine experience, around 500 years ago.

The coast of Gopnath is dotted with islands and limestone cliffs. Tourists enjoy a stroll along the sandy beach of the Gopnath coast. The site also features the Gopnath Bungalow, now transformed into a heritage hotel, which was the seaside retreat of the Gohil rulers of the city of Bhavnagar.

"Good choice for a day"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Mar 26, 2015
It is one of few spots where local people go for outing frequently. Distance from city is around 90 kms with rocky beach and dark water. Its fun if you are with group of people to enjoy. Few stay options and limited food choices around. One lighthouse, 2-3 temples around thats it.
