Karkala Tourism & Travel Guide

Dating back to the 10th century, the town of Karkala has been ruled by several royal families. Jainism being the major religion, makes Karkala a holy place for this religious community. Several Jain shrines dot the town of Karkala, the most famous of which are Chaturmukha Thirthankara Basadi, Hiriyangaddi Neminatha Basadi and Anekere Padmavathi Basadi. The Chaturmukha Basadi was built in the 16th century and is recommended for its historical and spiritual significance. Situated in the lap of nature, the Chaturmukha Basadi invites you for a spiritual and peaceful sojourn. The gigantic and magnificent statue of Gomateshwara and the Bahubali monolith are artistic wonders that definitely demand a visit. The several Hindu temples along with the St. Lawrence Church are examples of the religious diversity in the region. The 15th century-old Ramasamudra Lake is surely one of the best treats of nature that the Western Ghats offer.
