Gangeshwar Temple, Diu

4.4
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites 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.

  • Nice temple of Mahadev at sea shore of Diu Island. Very peaceful and calm. Best place to go and spend some time. This place is great combination of nature and spirituality. There are arrangements to sit by the shore. Childrens can also enjoy here. Temple is different in a manner that five Shivlings are there in a row at one place.
  • Nice temple which helps you calm. Located at the shore you can see 5 lings. Nice cliff is present behind the temple which shows the entire coast view. Nice photo spot.
  • One and only of its kind of temple.. exactly at the sea shore... Best place to be at that place.
  • Just a good place. Temple on the ocean front and can touch ocean water and click a few pics. Toilets are there but all were locked!! Wonder what they were made for? Huh..
  • Beautiful place....lord Shiva Shivalinga situated aside of sea....at the time of rain season the sea water bath the Shivalingas...peace.....har har Mahadev..
