Awe inspiring Temple

The Narayan Temple is famous mainly for the 123 foot statue of Lord Shiva next to it. Both the temple and the statue are truly awe inspiring. Visitors can take a lift to the 18th floor of the gopura from where great views of Arabian sea and the town. We had visited during the rains when it was very cloudy and hence I would recommend visiting on a sunny day when the true splendour of the statue can be appreciated.
