Talking about the Murudeswara temple. Murudeshwar is a town in the Bhatkal Taluk of Uttara Kannada district in the state of Karnataka. It is famous for a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The scenic beauty of this coastal town is sure to relax and rejuvenate you!

This magnificent statue is the second largest Shiva statue in the world!( Tallest is the Sri.Manjunatha statue situated in Nepal). It lies into the Arabian sea. Under the icon, there is a cave where the Shiva linga is there and a museum also. If we enter the museum, we can see more sculptures of Shiva, Ravana, Naradha, Ganapati and each statue shows, or they are arranged in a storytelling manner. We can understand all about the history of Murudeshwara after leaving the museum. Riding on the sea by boat is also thrilling. Overall we get a spiritual and a joyful mood with our family.
