About Somnath Mahadev Temple, Somnath
The Somnath Temple is a very important pilgrimage site for Hindus all across the globe as it is one of the first Jyotirlinga (Representation of Lord Shiva) out of twelve. It is believed to have been established by Soma – the moon god thousands of years ago, who made it as an offering to Lord Shiva, who helped Soma get relief from a curse. Over the course of its history the Somnath temple has been looted and destroyed a number of times by invaders because of the fabulous wealth that the temple accumulated in donations and offerings by kings, lords and other devotees. The temple which currently stands here was built in 1951 by the efforts of Sardar Vallabhai Patel. One marvelous fact about the temple is that ancient Indians were aware that is no land in between Somnath till Antarctica, a fact proven by a Sanskrit inscription found near the temple mentioning the same.
