Somnath Temple: How and when to visit?

Facing the wide open Arabian Sea, the temple at Somnath is an imposing structure offering a spectacular sight to the beholders. At a distance of 79 km from Junagadh and 25 km from Chorwad is the temple of Somnath, one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. The legend says, Somnath was built by none other than the Moon God himself at the time of creation. The remains of the temple "braved the shocks of time and survived the attacks of destroyers." Facing the wide open Arabian Sea, the temple at Somnath is an imposing structure offering a spectacular sight to the beholders. At a distance of 79 km from Junagadh and 25 km from Chorwad is the temple of Somnath, one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. The legend says, Somnath was built by none other than the Moon God himself at the time of creation. The remains of the temple "braved the shocks of time and survived the attacks of destroyers."

It is as old as creation and its reference is available in Rig Ved also. It is said - the Moon (Soma) with his wife Rohini worshipped the deity of the temple, the Sparsha Ling, to free himself from the curse of his father-in-law, Daksha Prajapati. Lord Shiva pleased with his penance restored his light for half of the month. Hence the deity here is known as Someshwar or Somnath, Lord of the moon and the place as Prabhas. The Somnath is known as the Shrine Eternal as it has withstood the shocks of time and the attacks of the destroyers. It has risen like a phoenix each time it was destroyed or desecrated.

 The present temple is the seventh temple built on the original site. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the great son of India and its first Deputy Prime Minister took a pledge on November 13, 1947 for its reconstruction which was completed on December 1, 1995 when the President of India, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma dedicated it in the service of the nation. The present temple is built by Shree Somnath Trust which looks after the entire complex of Shree Somnath and its environs.
Such a temple has not been constructed in India during the last 800 years. The Temple is situated at such a place that there is no land in between from Somnath sea-shore to Antartica, the South Pole. Such an inscription in Sanskrit is found on the ARROW-PILLAR erected on the sea-protection wall at the Somnath Temple.There is a grey-sand beach outside the temple which is part of the temple's lonely seaside charm.

The current temple was built to traditional designs on the original site by the sea. It contains one of the 12 sacred Shiva shrines known as jyoti linga. Photography is prohibited inside the temple, and you must leave your camera at the hut outside.

it is said to have originally been built out of gold by Somraj, the moon god, only to be rebuilt by Rawana in Silver, then by krishna in wood and by Bhimdev in Stone.

Sun temple "Modhera" NEAR Pushpavati River AT GUJARAT

If i ask you Do you know about Sun temple...Many of you will reply in yes and answer is "Sun temple in "Konark". but my friends there are more sun temples in India and one in Pakistan as this post i'm telling about Sun temple in Modhera,Gujrat.
Sun Temple at Modhera is one of the few shrines that are dedicated to the Sun God. Situated on the banks of Pushpavati River in Modhera. The temple at Modhera is the most important of all sun-temples built in the whole of Gujarat. It enjoys the same significance as other two well known sun-temples in Kashmir (Martand) and Orissa (Konark). The remains of this magnificent architectural monument still reflect the glimpses of elegance and testify the sanctity of the site.The Sun Temple was built by Raja Bhimdev I of Solanki Dynasty in AD 1026. This was the time when Somnath and the adjoining area was plundered by Mahmud Ghazni and reeled under the effects of his invasion. The Solankis, however, regained much of their lost power and splendour. Anahilvad Patan, the Solanki capital, was restored to glory. Royalty and traders jointly contributed to build grand temples.

Solankis were considered to be Suryavanshis, or descendants of Sun god. The temple was so designed that the first rays of the sun fell on the image of Surya, the Sun God, at the time equinoxes.

According to the Skanda Purana and Brahma Purana, the areas near Modhera were known during ancient days as Dharmaranya (literally meaning the forest of righteousness). According to these Puranas, Lord Rama ,after defeating Ravana, asked sage Vasistha to show him a place of pilgrimage where he could go and purify himself from the sin of Brahma-hatya (the sin of killing a Brahmin, because ravan was a Brahmin by birth). Sage Vasistha showed him Dharmaranya, which was near the modern town of Modhera. In the Dharmaranya, he settled at a village Modherak and performed a yagna there. Thereafter he established a village and named it Sitapur. This village is about 8 km from Becharaji Modherak village and it subsequently came to be known as Modhera.

The Sun temple is of a unique architecture of its own kind.

The temple comprises three separate but axially-aligned and integrated elements.

1. Surya Kund, which is an intricately carved, stepped tank named after Sun god Surya.
2. Sabha Mandap, which is a hall used for religious gatherings and conferences.
3. Guda Mandap, i.e. sanctum sanctorum, which once housed the idol of Sun God.

The Surya-kunda also known as Rama-kunda is rectangular and measures 176 feet north to south, by 120 feet east to west. It has many terraces and steps leading to the water level. On its sides and corners are various small shrines with the images of gods and goddesses namely Jalasayi Vishnu, Trivikrama, Goddess Shitala etc. "In viewing the Modhera temple as a whole the aesthetic sense at once responds to the elegance of its proportions, the entire composition being lit with the living flame of inspiration. But apart from its material beauty, its designer has succeeded in communicating to it an atmosphere of spiritual grace. The temple faces the east to that the rising sun at the equinoxes filters in a golden cadence through its openings, from door way to corridor, past columned vestibules finally to fall on the image in its innermost chamber.


Modhera dance festival is the major festival that is observed by the Sun Temple. This dance festival is organized to keep the Indian traditions and culture alive. It is held in the third week of January every year. The classical dance forms in the premises of this temple revive the imperial ambiance during the period. Gujarat Tourism organizes this event to promote tourism at this place. Thousands of people from India and abroad visit the place every month.

How to reach there:-

Sun Temple is easily accessible from Ahmedabad, the largest city of Gujarat.
By Air :
Nearest airport is in Ahmedabad at 102 kms.
By Rail :
Nearest Railway Station is in Mehsana which is 26 kms away from Modhera.
By Road :
State transport buses and private luxury coaches are available to reach Modhera from various cities of Gujarat.

Lord Srinivasa Govinda pictures and info at ISKCON, Bangalore

"ha ha Prabhu karo doya, deho more pada chaya, ebe jashak tribhuvana

Our own velentine king lord Krishna is known by names as "Gopal, Hari, Murari, Govinda, Srinivasa Govinda,Shyam,Mohan and many more. ISKON is one of the most famous group of devoties all around the world. Devoties From Many countries come to India specially for ISKON. ISKON has many branches all around like Delhi,Mumbai,Banglore etc.
I have been visited to pune, Delhi, Mumbai branches of ISKON.

Over the last six years by the divine will of Lord Sri Krishna and the powerful desire and mercy of His pure and exalted devotee, Srila Prabhupada along with the surrender and vision of the Bangalore ISKCON Temple President Madhu Pundit Prabhu and the temple devotees with the support of thousands of donors primarily from Bangalore and Karnataka, an incredible temple complex has manifest complete with three temples.

In the first temple Lord Narasimha is worshipped along with His pure devotee Prahlada. Next is the temple of Sri Srinivasa Govinda. The main temple hall contains the presiding Deities, Sri Radha Krishna-chandra along with Sri Nitai Gauranga and Sri Krishna Balarama.

Here, everyone attends the Mangala Aratik, performs Tulasi puja, sings Narasimha Aratik, chants 16 rounds of Hare Krishna maha-mantra will all the devotees in the main temple hall.

A most unique and ecstatic program is the “Sahastra-koti Hari-nama Japa Yajna for World Peace & Harmony.” This takes place on the steps of the Lord Narismhadeva temple, the first temple the pilgrims visit. From a booth over a loud-speaker system a devotee welcomes the pilgrims to the temple and introduces them to the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, gives them a card with the Hare Krishna mantra printed on it, and explains they can chant the mantra once on each of the 108 steps to Lord Narsimhadeva’s temple. Most of the pilgrims choose to enter the temple this way and therefore they all chant one complete round of the Hare Krishna mantra before entering the temple complex! I have spent quite a bit of time at this part of the temple and it is my favorite place. The pilgrims chant the Hare Krishna mantra guided by Srila Prabhupada who is loudly chanting the Hare Krishna mantra over a sound system along with other devotees who encourage the pilgrims to chant Hare Krishna louder… It can be a very ecstatic transcendental experience indeed.


A major festival of south India, Vaikuntha Ekadashi is observed with all solemnity in the temples of Lord Vishnu. The Vaikuntha Dwara (gate) of all Vishnu temples is opened on this day. Thousands of devotees pass through this gate to get special mercy of Lord Srinivasa Govinda. Lord Srinivasa Govinda receives a gorgeous bathing ceremony and special alankara on this day with sparkling jewels.

Shani Dev Chalisa Hindi and Shani Temples: Free Download

Shani Dev is one of the most popular deities that the Hindus pray to ward off evil and remove obstacles.Shani literally means the “slow-moving-one”. According to myths, Shani oversees the "dungeons of the human heart and the dangers that lurks there."

He is also known as Saura (son of sun-god), Kruradris or Kruralochana (the cruel-eyed), Mandu (dull and slow), Pangu (disabled), Saptarchi (seven-eyed) and Asita (dark).

Hindus accord immense importance to the planets, and Saturn or Shani is one such planet which they fear the most for ill-luck. Anyone born under his influence is believed to at risk.

Shani Chalisha:-

Jai Ganesh Girija Suwan, Mangal karan kripaal.
Deenan ke Dhuk dhoor kari, Kheejai Naath Nihaal.
JaiJai SriShanidev Prabhu, Sunahu Vinay Maharaaj
Karahu Kruia hey Ravitanay, Rakhahu Jan ki Laaj.

Jayathi jayathi shani dayaala, karath sadha bhakthan prathipaala.
Chaari bhuja, thanu shyam viraajay, maathey ratan mukut chavi chaajay.
Param vishaal manohar bhaala, tedi dhrishti bhrukuti vikraala.
Kundal shravan chamaacham chamke, hiye maal mukthan mani dhamkay.
Kar me gadha thrishul kutaara, pal bich karai arihi samhaara.
Pinghal, krishno, chaaya, nandhan, yum, konasth, raudra, dhuk bhamjan.
Sauri, mandh shani, dhasha naama, bhanu puthra poojhin sab kaama.
Jaapar prabu prasan havain jhaahin, rakhhun raav karai shan maahin.
Parvathhu thrun hoi nihaarath, thrunhu ko parvath kari daarath.
Raaj milath ban raamhin dheenhyo, kaikeyihu ki mathi hari linhiyo.
Banhu mae mrag kapat dhikaayi, maathu Janki gayi chooraayi.
Lakanhin shakthi vikal kari daara, machiga dhal mae haahaakaar.
Raavan ki ghathi-mathi bauraayi, Ramchandra so bair badaayi.
Dheeyo keet kari kanchan Lanka, baji bajarang beer ki danka.
Nrip vikram par thuhin pagu dhaara, chitra mayur nigli gai haara.
Haar naulakka laagyo chori, haath pair darvaayo thori.
Bhaari dhasha nikrusht dhikaayo, telhin ghar kholhu chalvaayo.
Vinay raag dheepak mah khinho, tab prasann prabhu hvai sukh dheenho.
Harishchandra nrip naari bhikani, aaphun bharen dome gar paani.
Tasse nal par dasha sirani, bhunji-meen koodh gayi paani.
Sri Shankarhin gahyo jab jaayi, Paarvathi ko sathi karaayi.
Thanik vilokath hi kari reesa, nabh udi gayo gaurisuth seesa.
Paandav par bhay dasha thumhaari, bachi draupadhi hothi udhaari.
Kaurav ke bi gathi mathi maaryo, yudh mahabharath kari daryo.
Ravi kah mukh mahn dhari thathkala, lekar koodhi paryo paathaala.
Saish dhev-lakhi vinthi laayi, Ravi ko mukh thay dhiyo chudaayi.
Vaahan prabhu kay saah sujana, jag dhigaj gadharbh mragh swaana.
Jambuk singh aadhi nakh dhari, so phal jyothish kahath pukari.
Gaj vahan lakshmi gruha aavai, hay thay sukh sampathi upjaavay.
Gadharbh haani karai bahu kaaja, singh sidh kar raaj samaja.
Jhambuk budhi nasht kar darai, mrag dhe kasht praan sangharay.
Jab aavahi prabu swaan savaari, chori aadi hoy dar bhaari.
Thaishi chaari charan yeh naama, swarn laoh chaandhi aru taama.
Lauh charan par jab prabu aavain, daan jan sampathi nashta karavain.
Samatha thaamra rajath shubhkari, swarn sarva sukh mangal bhaari.
Jo yeh shani charithra nith gavai, kabahu na dasha nikrushta sathavai.
Adhbuth nath dhikavain leela, karaen shaatru kay nashi bhali dheela.
Jo pundith suyogya bulvaayi vidhyvath shani graha shanti karayi.
Peepal jal shani diwas chadavath, deep dhaan dai bahu sukh pawath.
Kahath Ram Sundhar prabu dasa, Shani sumirath sukh hoth prakasha.

Shri Shaneshwar Devasthan Shanishingnapur’s legend in Taluk Naivasa of District Ahmednagar is famous, far and wide, as the shrine of countless devotees.Most Hindu temples have a little shrine set apart for the ‘Navagraha’ or the nine planets where Shani is placed. Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu, the oldest Navagraha temple has the most benign Shani. Another important Shani temple is at Shingnapur in Maharashtra where the deity is represented as a block of stone. Navi Mumbai has a Sri Shaniswar temple at Nerul while Delhi has a popular Shanidham at Fatehpur Beri in the historic Mehrauli area.

Shani and Hanuman Jee:-

The worship of Lord Hanuman is a panacea for the harsh effects of the 'unfavourable' presence of Lord Shani. In the Ramayana, Lord Hanuman is said to have rescued Shani from the clutches of Ravana and in gratitude, Shani promised Hanuman that anyone who prayed to Him (Hanuman), especially on Saturdays, would be rescued from the "malefic" effects of Saturn, or at the very least, the effects would be softened. Another version of the encounter between Lord Hanuman and Shani is that once Shani climbed on to Hanuman's shoulder, implying that Shani's influence was beginning on Lord Hanuman. At this, Hanuman assumed a large size, and Shani was caught painfully between Hanuman's shoulders and the ceiling of the room they were in. As the pain was unbearable, Shani requested Lord Hanuman to release him, promising in return, that if a person prayed to Lord Hanuman, he (Shani) would moderate or eliminate the malefic effects of his influence on that person; following this, Lord Hanuman released Shani.

Teachers Prayer

A Teachers Prayer

Lord, let me be just what they need.
If they need someone to trust, let me be trustworthy.
If they need sympathy, let me sympathize.
If they need love, (and they do need love), let me love, in full measure.
Let me not anger easily, Lord but let me be just.
Permit my justice to be tempered in your mercy.
When I stand before them, Lord, let me look strong and good and honest and loving.
And let me be as strong and good and honest and loving as I look to them.
Help me to counsel the anxious, crack the covering of the shy, temper the
rambunctious with a gentle attitude.
Permit me to teach only the truth.
Help me to inspire them so that learning will not cease at the classroom door.
Let the lessons they learn make their lives fruitful and happy.
And, Lord, let me bring them to You.
Teach them through me to love You.
Finally, permit me to learn the lessons they teach.

Teacher's Prayer

I want to teach my students how
To live this life on earth
To face its struggles and its strife
And to improve their worth
Not just the lesson in a book
Or how the rivers flow
But how to choose the proper path
Wherever they may go
To understand eternal truth And know
The right from wrong
And gather all the beauty of a Flower
And a song for if
I help the world to grow In wisdom
And in grace
Then I shall feel that I have won
And I have filled my place
And so I ask Your guidance, God
That I may do my part 
For character and confidence
And happiness of Heart.

Teachers Prayer

God grant me wisdom, creativity and love.

With wisdom, I may look to the future
and see the effect that my teaching will
have on these children and thus adapt my
methods to fit the needs of each one.

With creativity, I can prepare new and interesting
projects that can challenge my students and expand
their minds to set higher goals and dream loftier dreams.

With love, I can praise my students for jobs well done 
and encourage them to get up and go when they fall.

A Teacher's Reflection

God, I have come to the frightening conclusion.
I an the decisive element in the classroom.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
As a teacher I possess tremendous power to make a child's
life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
I can humiliate or humour, hurt or heal.
In all situations it is my response that decides whether a crisis
will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or
Grant me the insight and patience to make the right decisions 
to model Jesus in my classroom.

Teacher Reflection

Everything depends on the person who stands in the front of
the classroom. The teacher is not an automatic fountain from which
intellectual beverages may be obtained. He is either a witness or a
stranger. To guide a pupil to the promised land he must have been there
himself. When asking herself: do I stand for what I teach? do I believe 
what I say? she must be able to answer in the affirmative.

What we need more than anything else is not textbooks but textpeople. 
It is the personality of the teacher which is the text that the pupils read:
the text that they will never forget.

At Grading Time

There they sit, Father,
a neat stack of yellow report cards.
And here I sit,
an anxious and bewildered Solomon, 
praying in my heart for wisdom,
while the controversy about grading surges on.

Should there be an objective standard
whereby children are measured against other children?

And how do we weigh a child's achievement 
against his ability and effort?
Can we penalize a child for having little natural ability,
when he can't get a high mark
no matter how hard he tries?
And what about the child for whom "A"s come easily?
Will he skim through school never knowing what it is to try?

And what is happening 
when an "A" becomes so important that a child will
cheat for it,
perhaps to avoid abuse at home?

So here I sit, Father,
forced to take these cards seriously
because other people do.
Long on questions,
short on answers.

as I reach reluctantly for the top card,
let me also reach for your promise:
"If any one of you lacks wisdom,
let him ask of God."
