  • Scenic ancient historical monument, authorities need attention to maintain and preserve it. To my surprise there are no dustbin even, tourists have thrown bottles, wrappers , packages and other waste in open, looks odd . Rest quite calm there. Worth visiting . There's no refreshment shop though. Little open space for parking , but sufficient for the number of patrons visit the site.
  • Awesome place.. No cameras allowed.. No entry fees.. Unexplored.. picturesque locale. Passionate photographers can feel real here. Very close to the highway and access to this place is easy.
  • A place of natural beauty. We can witness the architectural ability of the people of that time. Also very beautiful to see. The planning of the people were extravagant as we can see it in the construction with under ground paths,cells,well,etc. The best time to reach there is either in the morning or evening as it is an ancient place there is no cover from sunlight and it is so hot.
  • Lying 20 km from Gokarna, the Mirjan Fort is a must watch. It has some great places for the photo bugs. It must look amazing during the monsoons, with lush green grass carpeting the entire fort. During the winters and summers the grass becomes dry. With better management and more information posters, the Fort will be more entertaining
  • It's a very secluded small Portuguese style fort. If you have time to spend and want to take great pictures.. then you would like this place

Where to stay in Gokarna

Close to the temples of Gokarna lie a number of guesthouses and simple hotels, most dating back to when the town was solely a place of pilgrimage. Look to the coast for the accommodations more popular with international visitors. By the main beaches, choose from speciality boutique lodgings offering yoga and meditation facilities, a selection of rustic eco-lodges, and some larger resorts with pools. A couple of campgrounds provide a memorable experience for outdoor adventurers.
