Murdeshwar Temple, Karnataka

4.7
Home to one of the tallest statues of Shiva in the world, Murdeshwar Temple is sited on a hill rising over the Arabian Sea. Pass the two lifelike elephant statues that guard the entrance and climb the long flight of stairs to reach the idol. The bottom of the hill houses the holiest part of the complex--the Rameshwar lingam, which is said to be a piece of the original Atma-Linga.
