Brief History

The Vishnu temple at the central circle in Somnath is built in a South Indian style with a yellow-tiered gopuram. It stands as a beacon to the start of the ‘temple-trail’ in the middle of the town. The temple does not stand in a sprawling complex but has a towering gopuram with intricate sculptures on heavenly themes. Inside the main sanctum stands an idol of Lord Vishnu, along with his consort, Goddess Lakshmi.

The Laxminarayan temple has a stream of devotees who come to pay respects to the divine ‘Shreevigraha’ of Bhagwan Laxminarayan. The temple is said to be created after the Laxminarayan Temple of Badrinath.
