Ancient temple

Temple's roots goes to the time of pandvas and vibrations are also nice. Nice and cool breeze, sea water sometimes enter the temple/Shiv Ling's.

The Shivling is one of its kind where the water of the Arabian Sea gushes down on to the Shivlings and back to the sea !!!

A small but nice temple. Early morning visit is best. A big ground and some benches are there - you can stay for some time and relax.

A beautiful Shiva temple . We can enter this temple like we do in a cave. The sea waters wash the Lingas continuously. The big snake sculpture on the rocks is impressive. A good parking place and clean toilets are available

We visited this temple twice once in the morning and night. It is one of the rare place where we see the Panch Lingas made by Panch Pandava during Dwapar Yug. It is exciting to see during night the sea's water waves doing Abhishek to the Shiv Ling's. If you are visiting Diu don't miss this place.

Location is almost into the sea... Hope you reach there in high tide and get awesome experience of water flowing to the shivling. Must visit place in Diu.

It is a small temple - good to visit early morning or late in the evening. Very quite and divine place. The temple has a series of Shivlings in a cave. These Shivlings are washed by the Ocean waves from the Arabian Sea.

Gangeshwar temple is a series of shivlings in an cave which is situated on the rocky shoreline of Diu. You have to descend round 20 steps to see the shivlings,here the sea water washes the shivlings during high tides. Nice scenic views of the beautiful Arabian oceans near the temple.
