Planning a Trip
Somnath is 465 km. from Ahmedabad and is connected by rail and road. At present, Jet Airways operates passenger flight from Bombay to Diu every day except Thursday, from where it is a further 95km to Somnnath. There is a night train from Ahmedabad to Veraval station. Somnath also has a railway station but has very few direct trains to major Indian cities. Also possible to fly to Rajkot from Delhi and possibly other cities, take a tempo to downtown Rajkot and take a train for 4-5 hours (see sunny countryside and the reality of poor encampments beside the tracks) from there to Veraval; some of the trains continue the remaining short distance to Somnath.
