Somnath Temple in Dwarka represents one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. The word Somnath refers to the protector of Moon God. This temple is situated in Prabhas Kshetra near Veraval, which is located along the western coast of Gujarat.

The Somnath temple have been destroyed six times and rebuilt six times. Thus, the temple is also known as 'The Shrine Eternal'. It is believed that Soma or the Moon God built this temple in gold, the demon king Ravana built it in silver and Lord Krishna built it in wood.

The final reconstruction of the temple started in November 1947, under the leadership of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. This temple is built in the famous Chalukya architectural style or Kailash Mahameru Prasad style, which is a clear reflection of the Sompura Salats skills.

Lord Shiva was so pleased by the prayers of Moon God that He decided to rest in this temple as a Jyotirlinga for eternity.
