    Resorts and Places to Stay in Gokarna

    Gokarna is a prominent Hindu religious centre and a popular tourist destination located in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka.  This town is famous for a number of beaches located at its periphery, which serves as a popular attraction for tourists.

    Owing to its great religious and cultural importance along with its well known beaches, this place attracts thousands of tourists from all around the world, thereby leading to the establishment of an array of Gokarna Beach Resorts as well as general Gokarna Resorts in this region.

    The word Gokarna literally means Cow’s Ear and there are several beliefs that point out as to why this place was named so. The first and the foremost belief states that Lord Shiva was born from the ear of the Cow, Prithvi or the mother earth. However many people seem to believe that this place was named so due to the fact that it is located at the ear shaped confluence of the Gangavani and Aghanashini Rivers.

    There is also a third version of this story, which indicates that after having been cursed by Lord Shiva for his arrogance and ego, Lord Brahma started thinking of ways to redeem himself from the curse leading to which Lord Shiva appeared in front of him from the ear of the Cow.

    Gokarna at times is referred to as the town of contrasts, as it is basically a religious temple town, which also serves as a seaside destination. The town looks very attractive with its brick laid houses and coconut-palm trees shading the sands.

    The beaches here are quite happening and are a hippy paradise, which adds a whole new pleasure quotient to energetic vibes of the destination. Due to so many factors working together, this place becomes a true tourist heaven, where one can enjoy and chill out to the fullest.
