Sri Kshetra Gokarna is a small temple town on the western coast of India in the Kumta taluk of Uttara Kannada district of the state of Karnataka. Gokarna – nestles between the vast Arabian Sea on one side and amazingly beautiful Sahyadri Ghats on the other side. Famous for beaches and temple of Lord Shiva in the form of “Atmalinga” , the city draws vast pilgrims and tourists from world over. It is believed that “Atmalinga is in the form of cow’s ear and that is why the name ” Gokarna”- the cow’s ear. Gokarna is known as one of the seven important Hindu pilgrimage centers. It is on what was once an unspoiled beach near the estuary of the river Aghanashini. Recently, due to the influx of tourists, the character of the town has changed; it is no longer just a centre of pilgrimage, though large numbers of devotees visit to offer prayers and worship to Lord Shiva. Gokarna is a temple town and a holiday destination.
