Somnath Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is believed that this temple was first built with gold by Moon God, with silver  by Ravana, with sandalwood by Lord Krishna, and with stone by Bhimdeva, Sonalki ruler.

It was six times destroyed by invaders, the present temple is the seventh temple reconstructed on the original site.

Mahmud of Ghazni(Afghanistan) invaded India 17 times from 1000-1026*, in 1024 he attacked and looted this temple by  massacring more than 50,000* inhabitants.

The arrow-pillar states that there is no land in between from Somnath seashore to Antarctica.

[I had visited this temple in 2006, and you?]
