its has been developed nice, but needs some attention in terms when you are travelling with infant you cannot take anything inside and thats the reason you cannot spend much time there. you are not suppose to take any electronic gadget as part of there security reasons. the view from the temple towards the sea was nice. rest all went perfect, i think the best time to visit shall be winters

A great temple and a unique one with ample open spaces..you can sit and relax enjoy the beautiful ocean view after the Darshan.
Excess to the temple is hassle free.

It is the 1st Jyotirlingas among the twelve jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva.

In Past, This temple was reconstructed several times repeated destruction.

To reach this temple, If one is traveling by train get down at Veravel station as this is well connected to major cities

and from there you have Temple bus provided by Trust or catch Auto/Bus.

if anyone traveling by airways, Diu airport and Jamnagar Airport are the nearest airport

Temple trust is providing accommodation for devotes and also we have plenty of private hotels outside the temple with various price ranges.

We have an online facility to book accommodation, Pooja, and to avail of these services, we need to book 3 days well in advance.

Any Electronic gadgets or metal items are strictly prohibited inside the temple and we have a locker or Clockroam facility available outside the temple.

We have separate queue lines for males and females for darshan which is free of cost.

Annaprasadam is available at Shri Somnath Prasad Annakshetra behind Old Somnath Temple

Marvelous Architecture and from temple sea view is fabulous.

Every day temple Flag is changed 3-to 5 times

Its well maintained and secured and it's safeguarded by state and central forces.

We have a laser show at 8:30 pm where they will show the history of the temple. Ticket costs around 30 rupees per person.

We have a temple bus at Temple Entrance that covers major holy places in and around Somnath in a 2-hour trip at Rs.30/- per person charges.

Next to this temple, we have the old Somnath temple.

We took this trip to coincide with the time of the sunset. It is possibly the best time to be there. The environs within the temple are cool by then. Spotlessly maintained, the temple itself is an architectural marvel. With the backdrop of the Arabian Sea, there is an ambience about the place that is redolent of bhakti. The Aarti that takes place after sunset is rhythmically evocative, and appeals to the inner souls. Unfortunately, we could not stay for the Son et Lumiere show.A must visit place. Please remember that all electronics, including smart watches and cameras are not permitted in the precincts.
