Featuring virgin beaches and breathtaking landscapes, the small town of Gokarna is about 450 km from Bangalore. A celebrated Shaivaite pilgrimage centre, Gokarna ranks as high as Varanasi and Rameshwar (Tamil Nadu) as a consecrated Shaivaite destination.

Gokarna is probably only place where both pious and the hedonistic have something to look forward to. The Mahabaleshwara Temple in the town is one of the holiest in South India and is frequented by pilgrims. And there are many beaches, some well isolated, which beckons backpackers.

Legend says that the Atmalinga acquired by Ravana from Lord Shiva was transported here. The 1,500-year-old Mahabaleshwara temple, the most visited location in town, enshrines a finely carved stone image of Lord Shiva in standing position.
