Somnath

3.8
Tourism in Somnath (officially known as Prabhas Patan) revolves around its famous Jyotirlinga of Shiva. Reconstructed numerous times over the centuries, the temple's structure still impresses, and its spiritual importance to Hindu pilgrims has outlived each test the temple has faced, including repeated sackings by numerous outside rulers and armies. India's 12 Jyotirlingas represent sites where Lord Shiva appeared as a column of light; this particular one stands on the spot where Shiva is said to have left the earth for the heavens. Numerous other temples surround, offering a wealth of places to visit in Somnath. Beyond that, an archeological museum and Buddhist caves round out the attractions. Somnath is in Gir Somnath District. Our India tour planner allows you to schedule your trip to Somnath, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Somnath
