Its quite small temple, the actual site of visit is 4X4 meters. We visited in afternoon and there weren't many visitors. Also, there is no public transport connectivity if you want to travel from city.

There is a small place where one can stand when the tides are coming in. you will love the splashing of the waves. Don't take electronic gadgets into that area.

Ocean waves bathing the shivaling is a sight to cherish. It is as if nature responds to the spiritual call.

Stunning views from around the cute little temple. The temple is a small outcrop of rock covering 3 little Shivlingas. The Shiv Lingas are washed by the sea during tides. Supposedly the oldest temple around.

A visit to this place gives you inner peace.. Calm effect was generated from the 5 shivlings. Sea water sounds like music here.. No crowd+ rainy environment make this place like heaven. We founds lots of crabs here.. A must visit place if you are going to cover diu.

This is an amazing place where sea waves wash the five shivlingas installed by Pandavs. The place is calm and clean. But one has to be very careful while climbing down the stair case to reach the shivlingas as the area is very slippery due to constant water

Gangeshwar Mahadev is a Holy spot with 5 Shivlingas supposedly constructed by the Pandavas who stopped at this spot, so that they could worship Lord Shiva before eating. The different sizes of the Shivlingas are attributed to the fact that each of them constructed one that resembled his own physical stature.
