Gokarna Ganapati Temple

Gokarna Ganapati Temple is one of the famous and very old siddha Ganapati shrines in the State. The temple has a 5 ft tall idol of Lord Ganapati in the form of a young Brahmin. It is in the same premises as the Gokarna Mahabaleshwar. It was here that Lord Ganapati disguised as a young Brahmin and secured the sacred shivling from the hands of the demon Ravana. It is considered auspicious to offer worship here before proceeding to visit Gokarna Mahabaleshwar.
