About Shri Kshetra Gokarna Mahabaleshwar
Gokarna (Kannada: ಗೋಕರ್ಣ) is a small temple town on the western coast of India in the Kumta taluk of Uttara Kannada district of the state of Karnataka. The main temple deity is Lord Shiva, who is also known as Mahabaleshwar. Gokarna is known as one of the seven important Hindu pilgrimage centers in India.
This holy place is known as Bhookailasa and the Southern Varanasi. (Ref. Skandha Purana, Guru Charitra)
Gokarna means Cow’s Ear. It is believed that Lord Shiva emerged from the ear of a cow (Prithvi, the Mother Earth) here. It is at the ear-shaped confluence of two rivers, Gangavali and Aghanashini. Thus Gokarna gained global spiritual significance. Performing Maha Mrityunjaya Homam at Gokarna has its own very significance.
Gokarna is mentioned in the Shrimad Bhagavata Purana as being the home of the brothers Gokarna and Dhundhakari. Mahabaleshwara Temple (Maha: great, bal: strength) is a famous Shiva Temple, and it houses the ‘Atmalinga’

Water drips from the roof over the linga, adding to the sanctity of the place. Best time to visit: During Maha Shivratri & August to March.

Queen Chennabhairadevi of Gersoppa (under the Vijayanagara Empire) was initially credited with building the Mirjan Fort in the 16th century. She ruled for 54 years and also lived in the fort. During her reign, the port at Mirjan, 32 km to the southeast of Karwar, was used for shipping pepper and betel nut to Surat. Gersoppa, a district annexed to Bednur, was famous for the pepper exported from this region. Consequently, the Portuguese gave the epithet “Rani, the Pepper queen” (“Rainha de Pimenta” in Portuguese) to the Queen of Gersoppa.
