Want to know more about a place? Its historical past and cultural heritage? Somnath is going to surprise you and how. Take an enlightening tour of the Prabhas Patan Museum and go back home knowing a wee bit more about this lovely town of temples.

Massive pillars, remnants of temples, artistic idols, inscriptions, domes, pious waters of several rivers and a myriad other ancient surprises greet you at this splendid museum. Housing the important
Kalbhairav linga of Lord Shiva and some of the most artistically carved idols of Indian gods from Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati to Lord Agni, the Prabhas Patan Museum shall leave you craving for more.
If history doesn't interest you, the lovely assorted seashells, pottery bits, a glass crate of water bottles that hold specimens from several rivers such as St Lawrence, Danube, Tigris et al will certainly catch your attention.
Maintained by the Government of Gujarat, the unique ornaments of archaic Indian architecture and other delights will take you back in time.

So, the history buffs can breathe a happy sigh of relief and explore all they want. Don't forget to carry your cameras for that bag full of memories.
