Featuring virgin beaches and breathtaking landscapes, the small town of Gokarna (Gokarn) is a celebrated Shaivaite pilgrimage centre. The 1500-year-old Mahabaleshwara temple, the most visited location in town, enshrines a finely carved stone image of Lord Shiva in standing position. Slowly gathering popularity to the tune of beaches of Goa, Gokarna (Gokarn)'s beaches are something to look out for.
Gokarna (Gokarn) 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 (Gokarn) 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 (Gokarn) is probably only place where both pious and the hedonistic have something to look forward to.
