Bhadrakali Temple

#0 of 8 things to do in Gokarna

Dedicated to Goddess Uma, a popular pilgrimage centre, this temple is one of the best religious places in Gokarna. This temple is famous for its various legends. One of the legends being, that when a demon known as Vetrasur took control of the three lokas, the trinity of Lord Vishnu, Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva created a female warrior called Durge. She was given various powers by the gods to defeat the demon and after that Lord Shiva renamed her as Bhadrakali. She was then sent to Gokarna to be protector of the town. Another popular legend is that it was Lord Cishnuto who requested the goddess to stay in Gokarna after Ravana abandoned her. If you are looking for both legends and religious engagement then Bhadrakali Temple should be included in your Gokarna itinerary.
