Bhadkeshwar Mahadev

Around five thousand years ago, a Shivalinga was revealed in the Arabian Sea, today we knowns as Shri Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Mandir. In the month of June/July, the ocean itself perform abhishekam the Shivling, and for some time this temple becomes the part of the ocean. The most famous festival of the temple is Maha Shivratri, on the day of Shivratri, a grand fair is organized around the temple.

Built on the very edges of Dwarka is a Shaivite Temple of absolute bliss and rapture. Located on a hillock on the Arabian Sea to the extreme west of Dwarka, the Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple is quite close to Geeta Temple and Rukshamanee Temple. There are very few words to describe the ethereal beauty of the Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple. With a well-built path leading up to the hillock from the shore and stairs leading straight to the temple itself, accessing Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple is rarely an issue. As it is built off the shore, the ebb and flow of ocean water flood the surroundings of the temple as well the path leading up to it. This is not really much of a hindrance, but rather adds to the beauty of it all.
