The history of Somnath Temple spans over a millennium. The original temple is believed to have been built by the moon god, as per ancient texts. The current structure, however, is the seventh reincarnation, constructed in 1951 in the Chalukya style. The temple has been subjected to multiple invasions and destructions, notably by Mahmud of Ghazni in 1026 AD, but has been repeatedly rebuilt.
