Somnath temple, a highly revered temple, is one of the main 12 Shiva temples in India enshrining the Jyotorlingas. This temple is constructed in the Chalukya style with a height of about 155 ft. The stone Kalash place at the top of main shikhara weighs about 10 tonnes.

Marvelously adorned Jyotirlinga with flowers, silver and gold adornments is a special attraction in this temple. The aarati puja at this temple is rejuvenating and is best for spiritual enlightenment. Ringing of bells, beating drums and cymbals make the occasion reverberating with Shiv Bhajans.

It is believed that Moon built this temple in Gold, later Ravana renovated it with silver, Lord Krishna by Wood and finally Bhima, one of the Pandavas, built this by stones. The temple had undergone many invasions buy foreign invaders, but still kept it sanctity and prominence. The splendid glory of this temple continues.

The temple was fully renovated and opened for the Somnath devotees in 1995, by the then President of India Shri. Shankar Dayal Sharma. This is a real august specimen of Indian temple architecture and the worthy religious destination to enlighten strong belief in God.
