Create an itinerary including Shiva Cave
Tucked away on a hillside, Shiva Cave is an ancient sacred site called "gogarbha" or "cow's womb" by the local people. Offering views of the surrounding area and the neighboring beach, the small cave remains a home to a population of small bats. Bring a flashlight if you want to explore the cave. Inside you will find a place for meditation with a lingam behind a blue wooden door and under a natural skylight. A visit to Shiva Cave represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Gokarna tour builder to plot your vacation.
