It was nice to have your own car rather than to go by bus or train. It will save a lot of time and it's helpful and if you want to visit the nearby places in some amount of time car travel was the best. Otherwise you have to take the local auto rickshaw and go to that place, which may charge you more according to the time you go at the place.
The experience was very good as I travelled by taxi and the place is just beautiful and the stay what we found was also simply nice. It was a religious trip and trust me very peaceful, you get a peace of mind there. The view of the sea is simply beautiful and you just can't find anything way more than watching the beautiful sunrise and sunset while you visit the temple.
Travellers should board into Somnath Express trains. This trains runs on night time so the journey was very good. It passes through Rajkot and Junagarh. In this train I would recommend that you should carry your food with you. Service in the train was not so good. Toilets were not clean. The time taken by train was too less and the travellers do not get bored in this train.
There was some issue with car not much comfort in car. Another was superb and there was no requirement to carry water or food because there were lots of hotels and dhabas. People who goes to Somnath they can also take another place from there such as div, tulsishyam, junagadh etc. We enjoyed a lot and people will also enjoy who goes to Somnath temple.
