At Gangeshwar Temple, explore the peaceful retreat dedicated to Lord Shiva--the destroyer and transformer in the Hindu trinity. Situated near the coast, the natural beauty surrounding the temple creates an otherworldly feel. As you approach the holy cave temple, observe five lingams or iconic representations placed there by the Pandava brothers during their exile. Note that if you visit the site during high tide, the submerged lingams will only show their tips. The nearby village doesn't have a railroad, so check out available public and private buses to reach the sacred site.

Mahadev temple on the sea shore near jalandhar Beach. During high tide it is partially submerged in the water. A kids play area is just Opp to it. In the evening you can relax on the chairs facing the sea. No parking issues. The surroundings are neat & clean.
Yes the temple is cool but what is more cool is the breath taking view on the way to the temple. Choose the way that is just after the sea. It would be the experience of your entire life and feels like a heaven.. Park you vehicle somewhere besides the road and sock the crazy feelings in.. You won't forget that for your life time.
