The prominent Somnath Temple is said to be the first among the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva and is one of the most significant pilgrimages for Hindus from the world over. It finds mention in the holy scripture Rig Ved, and is situated at Prabhas Patan in Saurashtra, Gujarat. It was rebuilt many times after destruction by marauding invaders. The present grand structure is in Chalukya architectural design, commissioned in the year 1951 and is considered to be a repository of the great Indian culture.
Since olden times, it stands on this very site, the confluence of Rivers Hiran, Kapila and Saraswati, known as 'Triveni Sangam' with the Arabian Sea.
