Somnath is the renowned temple of Lord Shiva situated near Veraval in Suarastra. It lies on the western coast of Gujarat state of India. The shrine at the Somnath temple is of one of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. It is believed that the temple appeared first in gold on the command of moon god. Next, the temple appeared in silver on the command of sun gold and then in wood at the command of Lord Krishna. Finally, the temple appears in stone which was built by Bhimdeva. Currently is the 7th temple, which was built in the same old style.
Bhalka Tirth is the place where Lord Krishna was resting in the shed of a tree and he was hit by an arrow on thumb of his feet. The arrow was shooted by hunter jara. The story goes that Lord Ram killed Vali as Vali had abducted his brother Sugreev's wife. Vali asked Lord Ram why he killed Vali when Vali had not done anything bad to him. So in return Lord Ram said that in his next Avataar (Lord Krishna), he will be killed by Vali's avataar (the hunter) and thereby avenge his unjust death by Lord Ram. Further, we will visit Triveni Ghat, the adjoining point of three rivers namely Kapila, Hiranya and Sarawati.
