Gangeshwar Temple, Diu

4.4
#2 of 18 in Things to do in Diu
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.

  • Great place where even giant sea bow down to lord Shiva. Nice place to have a taste on high tide time.
  • Scenic place if you're on right time like high tide and monsoons. We fulfilled both the conditions mentioned in above line so enjoyed a lot with cloud and camera.
  • Very beautiful place to visit if you wants peace of mind. The temple is situated at a very wonderful location at the bank of Arabian Sea in Diu where waves are continuously coming on the Lord Shiva Shivlings..Amazing place to visit in Diu.
  • The way waves come and go on shivling is awesome. U can find many crabs near this area
  • Many landscapes. Wonderful surrounding. Can spend hours together here.

Where to stay in Diu

In the main town of Diu, you'll find a number of mid-range and budget hotels close to the water, and a few more atmospheric, old colonial buildings converted into hotels and guesthouses along the streets further inland. If looking for beachside luxury, take a peak at Ghoghla and Nagoa beaches, with each of these stretches of sandy coastline housing a set of resorts, with onsite pools, restaurants, air-conditioned rooms, and spas. Make sure to reserve your room in advance, particularly around festival time, as Diu really isn't that big and can get overwhelmed with visitors.
