The Gauri Somnath Temple is very well known for its huge Shivlinga and statue of Nandi the bull. The lingam or shivlinga is almost six feet tall and made of a black stone with a shiny black texture and has the Nandi statue placed outside in the sanctum sanctorum. The whole structure of the temple resembles that of a star and has a surreal vibe associated with it. Legend says that the temple lingam had the ability to show future births, until it was damaged by Emperor Aurangzeb, after which the powers were lost forever. Also no one apart from an uncle and nephew pair can touch their hands while embracing the lingam from opposite ends.
