  • Very nice place. Positive vibes through out. This is the place where Lord Krishna was resting. From Ban Ganga the arrow hit to Lord Krishna at Bhalka Tirtha. Carry you bottled water with you. Water is very saline.
  • A valuable temple relates to Lord Krishna.everybody who love God must visit to this place.place is important as the arrow attacked Sri Krishna's foot that was the cause for Bhagwan's roal end towards this incarnation on our land.
  • It was under construction when we visited here. But clearly, major development works undergoing in the place. Of high religious importance as this is place where lord krishna departed to vaikunth. There is a tree where He was hit by the arrow. There is a kund as well.
  • Very beautiful temple amongst 12 Jyotirling. Mohammad Gaznavi attacked on this temple for 17 times. Temple has its own history and importance. Bhalka tirth and prabhas patan are nearby Somnath temple. Here are many temples to visit along with Somnath Dada temple. Private guest house available for stay. Sansthan provides lunch and dinner facility on subsidiary rate. A lot of devotees visit during Shraawan month and specially on Monday. There is very nice campus with 12 Jyotirling darshan and its mythology. Very nice and holy place. Jay Somnath Dada...
  • Very religious and peaceful place. Clean and quiet. Hold a very important place in the spiritual history of India.
