Beautiful temple one must visit in their lifetime. Very clean well maintained. Well organised. Must not miss light and sound show held in evening. Aarti is performed 3 times a day and is grand aarti. Its mesmerising specially in evening. One can enjoy the sea view from temple and is beautiful

"Having a tight budget !! Sightseeing with Holy vibes was a pleasure,"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 26, 2017
I visited Somnath on Mahashivratri Friday, 24 February 2017. We planned this trip from. I reach Somnath Station in the morning around 5:30 AM. Auto Rickshaws available for 10 rupees in share. We were two travellers. As we were in college so it was a tight budget trip. Although we managed to complete it within 4000 bucks.

The Shivalinga in Somnath is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in India. Since it was the festival time the environment was full of enthusiasm and holy chants.

"Jai ho Mahadev ki, Har Mahadev. "

There was a long queue to enter the main temple. Sacrifices were taking places around the place.

Prasad was available in plenty of amount to eat. Food availability varies from 120 Rs-350 Rs onwards. Hotels and Hostels are available from 500Rs onwards.

You can take part in bhajan kirtan. Sight Seeing with holy vibes was a great experience.

"Amazing, big and oldest shiv temple"

  • Posted Oct 13, 2017
This place is really unique because of it's place situated very near to sea. The seashore is also good and can enjoy everyone. The stay provided by Somnath trust is also very good at cheap price.
We can go to seashore by submitting our important thing to temple so no worry about our purse or Mobile.
There are more 5-6 places nearby where Somnath trust bus can take for a visit.
Must attend aarti of shiv at early morning as you can get amazing spiritual experience in temple.
Early morning sitting on wall of temple is also very amazing experience that every one have to take.
2 days with 1 night is enough to stay and travel.
Still I can remember those days

"Heart touching temple. Very religious place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 3, 2017
I visited Somnath temple with my family. Though I m not much religious but this temple touches my heart. Temple is located at the bank of sea. And senario is very beautiful. At three sides of temple there is a sea. And I get very exited. Security is very tight. Cleanliness was at it's best.

"Nice religious place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 20, 2017
A religious place for Hindu having one of the Jyotirlinga of great lord Shiva. Place is quite calm with a wonderful beach and small market. It is place for one day visit and there is nothing other to explore. Few environmental issues like smell of drying fish and flying small insects can become headache ..
