About Somnath

The city of Somnath in Gujarat is famous and home to one of the twelve sacred Shiva Jyotirlinga’s in the country. Legend tells one that the original structure was built in gratitude to Lord Shiva by the moon God Soma. Lord Shiva is said to have removed a terrible curse, the magnificent temple dedicated to his worship. Known to be an extremely wealthy place, the temple and the surroundings were plundered and destroyed by Muslim invaders who came in search of gold and treasures. Mahmud of Ghazni is said to have looted the place in 1026 and that the last raid was carried out by Aurangzeb who built a mosque at the site. This town has a nice beach and has been transformed into a pilgrimage spot.
