We, the community of Prabhaspatan Visa Oswal Jain Sangh are the natives of holy place Prabhaspatan popularly known as Somnath Patan. Prabhaspatan is located on the sea shore of Saurashtra about 7 kms. south of Veraval (Vallabhipur) the popular harbor of Saurashtra, Gujarat. This is place where Lord Shivas world famous Somnath temple with its first Jyotirling is located.
