Jyotirlinga - Somanatha Page1

The town of Somanatha-pattan, locally known as Patan (20-53' north lat. and 70-24' east long.) is situated on the south-western coast of Saurashtra in the traditional Prabhasa Kshetra-a place where the Yadavas are supposed to have fallen out amongst themselves and perished. About two miles further east, the three rivers Saraswati, Hiranya and Kapila-before joining the sea, unite to form the Triveni, held unusually sacred as the scene of the cremation of the body of Lord Krishna Dehotsarga. Nearly a mile to the North-West is the famous Bhalaka Tirtha, the traditional spot of Lord Krishna's death-apotheosis.
