Somnath Temple in Junagadh
It is a famous temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is one of the twelve jyotirlingas in India. The most interesting fact about the Somanth temple is that it has been built and destroyed six times. The present temple is built in Chalukya style and has been constructed in such a manner that there is no land between the temple shore and the South Pole.
The jyotirlingam pratishthapan ceremony (Establishment of Lord Shiv) was done by the first president of India, Dr, Rajendra Prasad. All these facts reveal the majesty of the temple and its importance for the devotees.
