This the place of Lord Krishna's departure from the earth. This where Krishna while resting under a tree was mistaken by a Bheel Warrior to be a Peacock, was shot by an arrow in his foot.

As per mythology here Lord Krishna, sitting on a tree branch was mistakenly hit by an arrow on her leg thinking of a deer eye by a hunter. The injury finally killed Lord Krishna.

They have created a very good concept of bus tours through the natural habitat of the animals, and you pass them real close. The best part is its very good if you dont have enough patience of moving in a jeep for 3 to 4 hours tracking a animal, if you have kids who will get bored in those jeeps... More

The place is OK, but surrounding is very dirty. We visited during last week of December 2016. The temple is under renovation, so you can not enter. However, you can see the deity from outside. OK place, but f you are not religious, oyu may skip the place as there is nothing to see as such

This place is a must visit place if you are at Somnath. It is believed that Lord Srikrishna was hurt by arrow of a Bheel tribe and he died here. A new temple is under construction, pl. donate some amt. here it's a great job.

This is a good place to visit but it is under construction. It needs complete restructuring. Also it is far from somnath temple.

To get there is a 15 min car ride from Somnath temple through dusty Veraval. There is nothing of note at the site. A temple is under construction and a small board gives you the same story that you can find on Wikipedia. Totally avoidable in my opinion.

This is the place wher Lord Krishna got shot by the Bhil. Nothing there except a temple under renovation. Go for spiritual reasons otherwise it is not worth the time spent.
