One of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva, the legendary Somnath temple is known to be one of the most beautiful temples in Gujarat that exist from ancient times. It is said that the temple was originally built by the Moon God in gold, rebuilt by Ravana in silver and then by Lord Krishna in wood and then King Bhimdev in stone. The temple was badly damaged and looted of its riches by Mahmud of Ghazni in 1024 AD. The temple was raided at several occasions in 1706, 1927 and 1934.
