  • Nice place near somnath. New construction of Lord krishna Temple is in progress.
  • The place is worth visiting.It is under construction so the importance is some what low.Once the temple is created it will be one of the best temples which has many mythological stories related to it.
  • Place is gettin renovated as of now. Yet beautiful. The temple has lord Krishna's idol sitting in the pose which is said was the one He was sitting in and was hit by a arrow. It also has the tree under which he was sitting.
  • Good place of religious importance. But temple is small and under renovation. Worth to visit if u are going in that route.
  • Shree Krishan temple.The place where our lord shree krishna went from this mortal world..

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.
