Murudeshwar, Karnataka

(3.9/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Stroll along a beach in a major Hindu pilgrimage center at Murudeshwar, a coastal town famous for the world’s largest image of Shiva. Admire an impressive 37.5 m (123 ft) tall statue of Lord Shiva seated in a lotus position, perched on a cliff with his back turned to the ocean, a gilded cobra coiled around his neck. Take an elevator to climb a huge 72.4 m (237.5 ft) high 22 story gopura, standing opposite the statue to get an impressive view of the image and the Arabian Sea. Considered to be the tallest one in the world, the gopura is guarded by two life-size statues of elephants.

  • The complex gives the impression from afar. An ancient tower, nadstroennaja and osovremenennaja. Climbed up the elevator, there's Windows, with which you can view on the surrounding landscape. From there very good looks shore beach. Nothing interesting there. A statue of Shiva 37 meters is impressive, and the remaining sculptures of elephants, chariots etc. At the bottom of the statue to the Museum with pictures of interesting moments biography of Shiva. Another interesting Golden Temple at the entrance you can buy Indian ritual of sweetness in the form of a yellow ball from Munky spices, sugar. They say that because the ball was consecrated, it is very rich and is able to satisfy the person for a long time. Indeed, rich.
