Gangeshwar Temple, Diu

Gangeshwar Temple located at Fudam village of Diu is very close to the Nagoa Beach



It is a very ancient Lord Shiva temple and there are five Shiva Lingas of different sizes amidst rocks on the seashore. It is believed that 5 Shiv Lingas are installed by the Pandavas during their exile to worshipping Mahadev.



The Shivlings are washed continuously by the tidal waves of the sea giving a mystic aura for the devotees and visitors. During high tide, one may only be able to view the tip of the lingams as they are submerged under water.



In the surroundings one can also see variety of birds flying around.



How To Reach: Fudam village is situated near Nagoa Beach at the eastern end of Diu Island.

It is mystical the way nature takes care of these man-made creations.... it would definitely be best to visit at low tide wouldn't it?
