Worth the drive to the western edge of India! The temples are well maintained and the panoramic view of the sea is long lasting. Pray in silence, but ensure to manage the time - since the temples are closed from 12-4pm.

About Narayan Sarovar
Narayan Sarovar is one of the most significant Hindu religious sites in Kutch. This sarovar is a combination of 5 holy lakes of Hinduism namely Man Sarovar, Pampa Sarovar, Bindu Sarovar, Narayan Sarovar and Pushkar Sarovar.
This lake is associated with an incident of drought that appeared in ancient times. To finish this drought, Lord Vishnu appeared in the site of this lake in the avatar of Narayan to answer the prayers of devotees and bless them with the water in this lake.
The main attraction of this lake is the temples in its region. The group of temples around the Narayan Sarovar are referred to as Narayan Sarovar Temple. The main temples in this site are dedicated to Shri Trikamraiji, Laxminarayan, Govardhannathji, Dwarkanath, Adinarayan, Ranchodraiji and Lakshmiji. An annual fair held in the place during November and December is also a big tourist attraction.
