Some of the places near Somnath Temple are Bhalka Tirth, Shree Golokdham Tirth (or Shree Neejdham Prastham Tirth) and Joonagadh Gate
It is 5 km from Prabhas – Veraval highway. At this location, the arrow fired by the poacher Jara hit Sri Krishna, who was resting under a Peepal tree. The Lord Sri Krishna then walked and reached the banks of River Hiran from where he started his last journey.
Shree Golokdham Tirth or Shree Neejdham Prastham Tirth
\ It is on the banks of River Hiran, 1.5 km away from the Somnath Temple. The footprint of Lord Krishna is carved here to mark the site of Neejdham Prasthan Leela. Baldev, the elder brother of Lord Krishna also took his last journey from here in his original serpent form.
This is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Gujarat with a distinct flavour of history to it. This is because many years earlier, Mahmud of Ghazni entered through this gate and looted the famous Somnath temple and turned it to ruins. Though it has worn out over time, this monument still continues to attract history lovers. But the carvings on the gate are a pleasant sight to behold, considering the amount of time that they’ve endured and what they represent.
