Gangeshwar Temple, Diu
(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
At Gangeshwar Temple, explore the peaceful retreat dedicated to Lord Shiva--the destroyer and transformer in the Hindu trinity. Situated near the coast, the natural beauty surrounding the temple creates an otherworldly feel. As you approach the holy cave temple, observe five lingams or iconic representations placed there by the Pandava brothers during their exile. Note that if you visit the site during high tide, the submerged lingams will only show their tips. The nearby village doesn't have a railroad, so check out available public and private buses to reach the sacred site. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Gangeshwar Temple by using our Diu itinerary planner.
