About Narayan Sarovar

99%
voted as clean

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.

"Average place"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jan 3, 2016
It's an average place, but these days we cannot take bath in sarovar, it's too much bad, cleanliness is not there at all. Mandir is only there which is good one, good food is not available, it's an average place, once you can visit there.

I just visited Narayan Sarovar after monsoon and just before winter it seems fabulous. This is the best place for bird watching and their life from very close. Just visit it in the coming Winter. It is the best facility of Gujarat tourism.

"Place of pilgrimage for Hindus"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 1, 2015
After recent Monsoon, Lake is overflowing with water. You can sit and enjoy in the evening. Room facility is very good with lowest rate. Also food facility is very best. You can pass 5-6 hours with family even you can do night stay. Must visit once.

"Natural beauty at Narayan Sarovar is awesome"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 28, 2014
Natural beauty at Narayan Sarovar is awesome. The place is a must visit. Boating facilities, variety of birds, and overall natural beauty. It wasn't really in our plan, but the locals suggested it, and trust me the place is awesome.

"Sea and Temple together - Awesome"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 5, 2014
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.
