Somnath

Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Gujarat  /  Somnath
(3.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: religious sites, sightseeing
Tourism in Somnath (officially known as Prabhas Patan) revolves around its famous Jyotirlinga of Shiva. Reconstructed numerous times over the centuries, the temple's structure still impresses, and its spiritual importance to Hindu pilgrims has outlived each test the temple has faced, including repeated sackings by numerous outside rulers and armies. India's 12 Jyotirlingas represent sites where Lord Shiva appeared as a column of light; this particular one stands on the spot where Shiva is said to have left the earth for the heavens. Numerous other temples surround, offering a wealth of places to visit in Somnath. Beyond that, an archeological museum and Buddhist caves round out the attractions.

Where to stay

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.
