Gokarna [derived from the words ‘Go’-Cow, ‘Karna’-Ear] is a town situated in the Kumta taluk of the Uttara Kannada district of the state of Karnataka on the western coast of India (banks of the Arabian sea). It is a place of temples and is surrounded by many beautiful beaches and is at the confluence (cow ear-shaped) of two rivers – Aghanashini and Gangavali.
It is believed that Lord Vishnu was graced by Lord Shiva at the shores of the Sea in Gokarna and hence, this is considered as a place which is holy, and having historical an mythological importance. It is also known as ‘Bhookailasa’ and ‘Dakshina Kashi’ and is therefore a pilgrimage center (Teertha Kshetra/Punya Kshetra) for many devotees.
Since it is a place of temples, it is also called ‘Siddhi Kshetra’ which helps the devotees in achieving ‘Ishtaartha Siddhi’. Also, it is one of the Places of Salvation (Mukti Kshetra) in Karnataka.
The main temple in Gokarna is the Mahabaleshwara (Shiva) Temple which houses the ‘Aatmalinga’ whose blessings are believed to be very powerful (having immense ‘Devara Shakti’). There are many other temples in this town such as Sri Maha Ganapathi Temple, Sri Bhadrakali Temple, Sri Kalabhairava Temple and so on.
Since this is a holy place, Visitors and Devotees come here for performing rituals such as Pinda Daana, Pitru Dosha Nivaarane, Sarpa Dosha Nivaarane, Shanthi, Shraaddha, etc.
