Dakshina Kashi or Gayapada Kshetra

60 kms from Mangalore, this small temple town in coastal Karnataka is known as Dakshina Kashi or Gayapada Kshetra. The famous Sri Sahasralingeshwara Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is in this town. The town is blessed with the sacred meeting place(Sangama) of two main rivers, Netravathi and Kumaradhara, of Dakshina Kannada. People take holy bath (Sangama Snana) and worship Lord Shiva, which is expected to absolve them of all sins and guarantee moksha after death. It is the second Sangama Kshetra in Karnataka, next to Koodala Sangama in Shimoga.
