Gokarna - Karnataka

Gokarna means Cow's ear..It is one of the foremost holy places in India..The main temple's deity is Lord Siva who is worshiped as Gokarneshwara or Mahabaleswara..It is not only a temple town but also a holiday destination..The place looked fabulous with streets having shops on both sides and traditional brick houses..There are several beaches here and also as this place is nearby Goa,we saw many foreigners passing through the streets.
Here are few pics taken during our visit to the temple,
