    • In medieval time, during the regime of Hindu rulers, Gujarat’s Somnath Mahadev enjoyed daily supply of water from river Ganga through ‘Kavad’ system. Daily ‘Kavadiyas’ from north India used to bring holy water of river Ganga for Lord Somnath’s puja. Even flowers were supplied from as far as Kashmir for puja of Shri Somnath dada.

      After a gap of long period, today Shri Somnath Mahadev’s Jyotirling is offered river Ganga’s holy water daily again!


      There is an interesting story behind this.

      Narsibhai Chaudhary and Naranbhai Chaudhary are small time farmers living in North Gujarat’s Chanasma taluka’s Brahmanvada village. They are among crores of devotees of Shri Somnath Mahadev mandir.
