HolidayIQ Traveller Utsav says, "Somnath is first among the twelve Jyotirlinga, This legendary temple has been destroyed and rebuilt several times. It is also believed that this is the place where Lord Krishna ended his life on earth and left for heaven. Best is to see the sunset from the temple compound. Somnath railway station is the best way to reach Somnath. However road transport should be the preferred option considering fewer train on this route. Many shops and small restaurant are all around the temple compound. Prefer to visit Dwarka as well which is around 4 hours drive from Somnath."

7. Udvada Beach
