(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Stop at Somnath Temple and observe the structure's impressive Chalukya-style architecture. Standing on an ancient holy site where the moon god Soma reputedly bathed, the temple has undergone destruction and reconstruction several times over millennia; the most recent instantiation dates from 1947. Observe the temple's unique Shiva linga, believed to be one of 12 Jyotirlingas in the country, each placed where Shiva reputedly appeared in a column of fire. Be aware when exploring that cameras and phones are not permitted within the temple. Add Somnath Temple and other attractions to your Somnath trip itinerary using our Somnath trip itinerary planner.
