  • Still in construction.... Great place to visit...must one time... Great historical stories with this temple and my family.
  • Hindu pilgrimage centre. This is the place where lord Krishna ascended to heaven after being hit by a Hunter's arrow, to fulfill a curse. Very near to Somanath temple, recently renovated next to a fishing hamlet where you can see big boats being built
  • The historical place where God Shri Krishna seat under a baniyan tree and was stricken by an Arrow from a hunter by mistake. Shri Krishna left this materialistic world at this place. The tree is still preserved and nice temple built around it.
  • Historical place , but originality is not maintained, during renovation, original soul is missing .
  • Nice place..shree Krishna tirth ...Lord Krishna go to golok dham from hear..peaceful place ..if u go somnath so plz visit Bhalka tirth ..

Where to stay in Somnath

Development in the area close to Somnath's main train station has created a cluster of places to stay, eateries, and stores. With more space available here than in the older parts of town to the south, a number of large hotels boast amenities such as onsite restaurants and swimming pools. To the south, where the town gets more crowded around the temple, you'll find a number of guesthouses--some explicitly for the use of pilgrims--offering good rates right in the heart of the temple town.
