Somnath Mahadev Temple is the first of twelve temples where, as legend has it, Shiva appeared as a fiery column of light to prove his supremacy in the Hindu pantheon. This temple, which dates from 1951, features curved pyramidal forms and elaborate carvings. The main shrine with nearly 15 m (50 ft) tall shikhara (main spire) towers over the vast courtyard. Look for Deep Stambha--the tower on the embankment--and see the arrow marking the invisible line that points directly at the South Pole.

The most amazing place ever. Peace is redefined at this place. Not just the temple the surroundings are well maintained as well. Totally loved it. Truly feels like god resides here himself. It's location near water body is just cherry on the cake.
Temple looks very good from inside. There is also a sea viewpoint inside the temple. A binocular view of Shiva lingam in the sea which is 6 km away from the temple can be seen only for rs 5.
