A fun trip worth spending a long weekend

A long weekend, that's all one needs to experience the divinity of Lord Somnath and the nearby attractions. Mouth Watering Kathiyawadi food and heritage of Junagadh and a bit of Wildlife in Sasan are the most sought after attractions for travelers in the region.

A holy and peaceful place

We visited Verawal for Somnath Darshan. It was really a holy place and peaceful destination. I like to visit Somnath Temple more than 3 times. Always we feel great and have awesome experiences. One more thing, the food is really delicious and tasty. Fafda gandhiya is really delicious here.
