Gokarna Travel Guide

Gokarna in Karnataka appeals both to the spiritually inclined as well as to the beachcomber. It is a very small town and you can see all of it in an hour. Tourists, both foreign as well as domestic have been coming here for ages but the facilities are still very basic. The religious ones visit the many temples that dot the town and the nature lovers head straight for the beach.

Gokarna is a town of paradox- a holy destination contrasted by it being a popular beach destination. With endless rows of coconut palms, blue seas and clean water it is the best destination for beach lovers.

It is also believed that Lord Shiva emerged from a cow’s ear so the name Go- Karna meaning ‘cow’s ear’ in Sanskrit.
