Gokarna

3.7
The small temple town of Gokarna has changed drastically in recent years. Once solely a place of Hindu pilgrimage, the picturesque coastline scenes of sandy beaches, palm trees, and wooden fishing boats have diversified Gokarna tourism. The old temples display distinctive religious architectural styles, contrasting with the rustic homes that surround them in the main town. The scene of many traditional Hindu stories, the area certainly has a landscape one could describe in supernatural terms, with the unspoiled beaches chief among its many natural highlights. Gokarna is in Dakshina Kannada District. When using our India road trip planning app to make an itinerary online, Gokarna holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
