The present temple, constructed in 1951, is the seventh reconstruction of the original shrine. In the past, its riches attracted many invaders, who looted the temple and left it destructed. However, each time the temple was restored to its original glory by Hindu devotees. After paying homage to the Mahadev, head towards Bhalka Tirth – the famous Lord Krishna temple. It is supposed to be the site where the lord is said to have been mistakenly shot an arrow in the foot by a poacher named Jara. Lord Krishna was resting under a peepal tree, when the poacher misread him as a deer and hit from a distance. Realising his mistake, the poacher asked for pardon. The lord generously pardoned and blessed him. Later, spend the night at the hotel near Veraval.
