  • Very very beautiful and unique temple of Lord Shiva in the world . Here , Removal of upper clothes of males is rule for entry of males in temple. Parking is little far away from temple. And temple is crowdy many times.

  • Don't expect too much from this temple..the temple is simply known for its history..its a very old temple which was build during the year 350CE.there are 2-3 beaches near the and videography is strictly prohibited inside the temple..foreigners are not allowed inside the temple..Priests inside the temple will try to fool you by mentioning several donations to be made to them,.there are several shops and stores were visitors can shop..antique pieces,clothes,toys,spices are found in the shops..Rules here are pretty much weird and strict..Goa and Murudeshwar temple is nearby from this location..
