Gujarat: Devotees congregate at Somnath temple on last Monday of 'Nija Sawan'

Shri Somnath Jyotirlinga

Navsari: A large number of devotees thronged the Somnath temple in Bilimora to offer prayers on the last Monday of 'Nija Sawan' month.

The devotees queued up since early morning to seek blessings at the temple and also participated in the aarti performed on the occasion.

The temple is believed to be the first among the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines of Lord Shiva and is an important pilgrimage and tourist site in Gujarat.

According to the Hindu Gujarati calendar, Nija Sawan began on August 17 and its last day will be September 15 this year.

Special pujas and rituals are observed on 'Nija Sawan' Mondays which are known as 'Shravani Somvar'. (with Agency inputs)
