We went to the famous Mahabaleshwara & Ganesha temples in Gokarna and street shopped for a while after that. On the way to the temples we spotted a peacock on the road! Wish I had a picture, but we were too enthralled to take out our cameras. The Gokarna beach is well within a few meters to the temples and street shops. Since it was very hot and humid, we spent more time in the little shops sipping tender coconut rather than getting grilled in the sun.
After a while, we found out that Mirjan Fort is around 25 kms from Gokarna and took our bikes out for a ride. The roads were good except for the last stretch. The fort was a beauty on its own and a perfect place for a photoshoot during dusk. It might take around half hour to one to explore the fort. Do add t Once our legs started giving away we headed back to Gokarna but this time towards Kudle beach. Kudle was way less crowded than Om and the water was nice too! The sunset was splendid and we just sat there, absorbing the last few beautiful images that Gokarna had to offer to us before we headed back to Bangalore
