Gokarna is located in western sea coast of Karnataka, India. It is an Hindu pilgrimage centre with lot of Shiva temples and it is also having several beaches for tourists

Gokarna Hindu Pilgrimage Cetre

Gokarna, implication Cows' ear in Sanskrit as the ear shape. One of the Hindu stories states that "aatmalimga" of the God Shiva is in the state of a bovine's ear in the Mahabaleshwar temple & the town increases its name as Gokarna. It is a moderate Hindu journey town, home to a few temples and celebrations. The town itself is full of locals and pioneers, and doesn't have much in the way of offices for travelers, other than a handful of guesthouses and nearby restaurants.

Around Gokarna

The town is chiefly centred around the KSRTC transport stand. Around a kilometer from the transport-stand , the Gokarna beach begins , structuring the bank of the town. As you walk along the tight paths of the town towards the sunny shore (the path is named 'Samudra Marg'), you will run into houses of clerics where certain religious talk could be going ahead or individuals summoning the Holy Lord with serenades.

Gokarna beaches

Most unfamiliar voyagers come to stay on one of the 4 sunny shores just south of town. Kudlee Beach is the in the first place, around a 20 moment stroll, emulated by Om Beach, Half Moon Beach and the segregated Paradise Beach -the shores get more remote and less populated as you head south


The most mainstream chance to visit Gokarna is throughout the 4-day Shiva Ratri celebration, when 2 mammoth chariots are pulled down the essential road and up to 20,000 travelers plunge on the town. Shiva Ratri falls on March 10th 2013
