about gokarna

Gokarna is a destination as much for the ardent pilgrim as the beach-lover. This ancient temple town and centre of Sanskrit studies has attracted Shaivites for centuries. This is where Shiva is said to have emerged from the ear of a cow; Gokarna literally means cow’s ear. In the last two decades, Gokarna has also become a hub for hippie tourist culture. Primarily a pilgrimage site, Gokarna is known for its endless rows of coconut palms, blue seas and clean beaches emerging as an idyllic location for a quiet seaside holiday. Sited at the confluence of two rivers, Gokarna ranks as high as Varanasi and Rameshwar as a consecrated Shaivaite destination. Legend says that the Atmalinga acquired by Ravana from Lord Shiva was transported here. The Mahabaleshwara Temple is the true embodiment of Indian architecture and hence attracts a lot of art buffs. The beaches here are secluded, they are pristine and they are perfect for a joint venture between you and the sea. Gokarna is probably only place where both pious and the hedonistic have something to look forward to.
