Every town is bestowed with its own intriguing history, a colourful culture and a distinct lifestyle which makes it different than any other. Festivals and events are always enveloped in much enthusiasm and fervour. The charming town of Gokarna celebrates the beautiful festival of Mahashivratri in a grand way. The night of Lord Shiva brings in an air of positive energy and aura in town.
Celebrated in the month of February, this four day long festival sees the town immersed in a different light. Devotees from all over the country visit Gokarna during the festival to receive the blessings of
Lord Shiva. The main temple of Mahabaleshwar is the center of much activity during this grand festival. The magnificent idol of Lord Shiva is mounted on a temple chariot and is driven to the temple from the main bazaar. Bystanders indulge in various rituals and customs for blessings and good luck.


If you are in town during the vibrant festival of Mahashivratri, you’ll witness fun, excitement and a fair share of confusion and chaos. Join in the celebrations and you’ll go home rejuvenated.
