Somanath - Daityasudan Mahavishnu Mandir

Among the many visit-worthy places in the holy Somanath kshetra, this lone Vaishnava temple holds out irresistible attraction for asthikas and paryatakas as well. It was materialised at the behest of the Lord himself in a dream to the deserving devotees. On account of its fascinating past and grandeur of construction with modernity peeping at the visitors, it is luring all that visit the yugas-old Somanath shrine.

This shrine was built in the last century, and the idol of Mahavishnu is quite impressive. When the main temple was destroyed, this rare idol was preserved under earth at a place called Chakra thirtha. As the story goes, Lord Maha Vishnu appeared before the ardent devotees - Umasankar Desai and Vishamber Bhatt in dream and directed them to disenter and built a shrine for him. They did. It is a grand shrine of modest dimensions.

As it is located in the Main Bazaar, the visitors of Somanath Shrine reach it on foot and offer soulful prayers on listening to its awe-some past.
