Create an itinerary including Gangeshwar Temple
At Gangeshwar Temple, explore the peaceful retreat dedicated to Lord Shiva--the destroyer and transformer in the Hindu trinity. Situated near the coast, the natural beauty surrounding the temple creates an otherworldly feel. As you approach the holy cave temple, observe five lingams or iconic representations placed there by the Pandava brothers during their exile. Note that if you visit the site during high tide, the submerged lingams will only show their tips. The nearby village doesn't have a railroad, so check out available public and private buses to reach the sacred site. Put Gangeshwar Temple into our Diu trip builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Diu.

  • From the outside the temple is simple without any fanfare. There are 5 Shivlings believed to be established by Pandavs and during the high tide these get washed daily. Did not see it as we went...

  • Visited there mid November, the water level was just perfect so witnessing all the temple was easy. The water is blue as sky. There is a point a fit further from the temple place, the stone structure and sunset looks too good. Can easily spend around 1-2 hrs here. You will find dry fruit sellers outside the temple selling at a very low cost, check those out too.
  • Amazing temple at the sea shore. where every waves touches the five shiv Ling. Just a little walk from the parking area this is must visit place in diu. Amazingly beautiful. And be aware about crossing the railing built at the shivlingas . There will be crabs so make sure about going to the rocks.
