Best Time to Visit Somnath

The best time to visit Somnath is during the winter months of March to June. During this time the temperature remains extremely comfortable to go out and explore the temple comfortably.
It is best to go for a Somnath tour plan during these comfy months rather than going during the scorching summertime when you won’t be able to comfortably and fully explore the temple complex that has a lot to offer.
Monsoon time in Somnath from July to September should be avoided since it may lead to random flooding situations and you may have to postpone your travel and exploration plans.
