good place and easily accesssible ,all place shows about lord krishna and his brother, nice place to visit
Lord Krishna breathed his last breath here.This is on the way from Veraval to Somnath. One can spend few minutes.
I loved this place because it witnessed the moments of Lord Krishna leaving this planet earth for his Golok. It was heart breaking to see that the structure of the temple was in pathetic state. Very poorly maintained, old building materials scattered all around, I did not expect to see all this for such an important and holy place of our country

The place from where Lord Shri Krishna left for Nijdham or his abode. A beautiful temple stands monument to the event at the very same place. A must visit when you are in Somnarh.
