Gita Mandir, Somnath

These are group of temples at Somnath situated on the banks of a Hiren river. This is a calm and serene place just 5 kms away from the Someshwar Mahadev Temple.



Gita Mandir is modern temple built by Birla family in 1970, which is dedicated to the Bhagwat Gita. 



Inside the temple there are 18 pillars and each pillar symbolizing a chapter from the Gita.



The main deity of the temple is Lord Krishna. 



Mainly Balram took Krishna here after Bhalka Tirth and his footprint is here at this place.
