Bangalore - Karnataka.com Barkur


Udipi district 71 km (44 miles) North of the Mangalore. The Coastal Town of Barkur was a flourishing port in the 15th and 16th centuries until its river silted up. Today, the town's main attractions are its many temples with their typical sloping terracotta-tiled roofs. The largest is the Panchalingeshvara Temple, situated at the southern end of the town. Devotees gather at the stepped tank near the temple for a ritual bath before worshipping at the two east-facing linga shrines. The other temples include one dedicated to both Shiva and Ganesha, and the smaller Somanatheshvara temples.
