Overview

 

World’s Tallest Shiva Statue Temple at Murudeshwara Beach

At the coastal Arabian Sea, Long and Gigantic Shiva Statue is a divine sight to witness. Explore the temple, as it’s quite huge and it depicts many mythological stories. You can also stroll around the Murudeshwara Beach for Sunset view; it’s quite pristine and clean.

OM Beach Gokarna

It’s not just the shape that defines OM beach, but also the peace and serenity that one feels after landing there. Smooth waves and long shoreline tend to captivate your senses. The top view of this beach distinctively shows the Letter 3, which means OM in Hindi.

About Yana

The Sahyadri range holds treasures beyond measure. Yana Caves is one such example. Two sooty rock hillocks, made of crystalline limestone can be seen rising sharply above a blanket of green forest. They have been named—Bhairaveshwara and Mohini, after two mythological characters. The former embodies a self-manifested Shiva Lingam while there is an idol of Goddess Parvati inside the latter. The cave temple is also popular for Shivratri celebration by locals. A simple trek of 3kms through a thick, damp forest is all you need to get there. The area is also apt for nature walks to observe its biodiversity.

Symbol of Remarkable Historical Stories the Mirjan Fort

Lying at the banks of River Aghanashini, Fort Mirjan is a huge fort with impeccable architecture. Explore the deep well, watchtower, prayer hall and strategically built walls.
