A must visit place for anybody....doesn't matter whether you are religious or non religious... For religious people it is a jyotirlinga to visit but for non-religious, it is a beautiful & excellent place to visit...you would get fond to this place while seeing its location....the ambiance...the surrounding... Really nice temple having great history with great view....

Amazing place with great crowd control,the jyotirlinga is made of gold & the beauty is indescribable, but also the surrounding area is very clean,only problem is smell of fishes,as there is a large fishing port nearby,other than that great experience, all must visit.

Super, mesmerizing Jyotirlingam temple. Awesome backdrop of the sea and cool-breeze. I am not a big atheist, but I saw myself connected to the mantras and bhajans there during the Aarti time. There is a small display of all 12 Jyotirlingas within the temple premises, which makes-up if you missed other ones. A must-watch temple.
