The Bus stopped at 1 am for a refreshment break and it was drizzling and we were passing through the dense forest and fireflies all around just imagine the weather.....
"Aise mausam mai chai ko kon bhool sakta hai "
So we were back on our route after a short break.
With all excitement for the day ahead we reached Murdeshwar sharp at 7 in the morning.
(Murdeshwar is a town in BhatkalTaluk of Uttara Kannada district in the state of Karnataka, India.
The origin of the name "Murdeshwar" dates to the time of Ramayana.Well if you read the story of Atma Linga, you will get to know the significance of this palce.....)
So after getting down be booked rooms for kept our bags and freshened up and were ready to go on beach, but it started raining heavily and it only lasted for 20 minutes and we were on the beach to play.
We still decided to play without even caring about the rain for an hour and half.
So after again getting freshened up we went to the famous Murdeshwar temple built on Kanduka-Giri .
Well Lord Shiva's statue built in Murdeshwari 123 feet tall making it the second highest statue of Lord Shiva.....
With waters surrounded from three side of Arabian sea which is just mesmerizing and so beautiful.
Also with a 20 storey gopura constructed at the temple allowing visitors to reach the 20th floor through lift and enjoy the scenic view all around.
It was 11:30 as we completed the darshan of lord shiva and explored the Kanduka-Giri.So we had our breakfast and planned to visit Apsarkonda Falls in Honnavar which was 25 kms from Murdeshwar and booked an auto for 600rs with return.
