Beautiful Temple

This is a very beautiful and ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Normally it will be crowded and it took 30-45 mins to have darshan of main diety. You have to go by steps and people will be allowed in batches to see the main diety. The big statue of lord shiva is excellent and it is visible from far distance. you need to walk little distance to reach this statue. Since it is hot, it is better to carry a umbrella. In the entrance lift service is available to reach top of the temple. But you need to pay Rs. 10 and wait it long queue.

Breathe taking

Go in early cool hours before sun is high. View from fort towards temple statue beach is breathw taking. Its merely 1 hours visit but u can just soothe ur eyes with serene view 360 degree. Try cave darshan inside temple on 1 st level to see n listen to auto recorded story of ravana n shiva linga.

A must visit, this one

Our host told us that a lot of people think the tower is merely an entrance and miss going to the top (there's a lift that takes you to the 18th floor). Keeping this in mind, we first went up the tower. The view from there was breathtaking! From one side, you can view the town, from the other, the speedboats, the third shows you the fishing boats and the fourth and the best - the huge Shiva statue on the seashore. The Shiva status is so majestic, and the location is simply marvellous. I am not much of a spiritual or devotional person, so I am not gonna talk about the temple. But overall, a must visit, this one.

Beautiful temple come Fort

Beautiful temple to visit. You can get a bird's eye view from the top floor. We can learn about the mythological history of the Murudeshwar temple. The lighted up night view is excellent.

A treat to the eye

Murudeshwar is around 500 odd kilometers from Bangalore. Murudeshwar is another name of the Hindu God Shiva. Buy the ticket (10-20Bucks) to see the view of Lord Shiva statue from 20 storied Gopuraat . You can explore Boat ride or Jet ski plus There is an option for Scuba Diving at Netrani Island close by. The view is magnificent. Sunrise is special

Wonderful location

This temple is in a wonderful location surrounded by the sea from 3 sides. You get a 360-degree view of the nature from the temple. The temple itself is of high religious significance with connection to Ramayana and Ravan. There is also a big Siva statue behind the temple which is worth seeing.
