There is a relatively small town called Murudeshwara (India) on the coast of the Arabian Sea. The town may be small but it is the location of the second-tallest Shiva statue in the world. The statue and the Murudeshwara Temple are located on a hill directly next to the coast giving you a gorgeous view of the Indian coastline.
During my rickshaw trip through India in 2010 I came across a relatively small town called Murudeshwara in the Karnataka region in India. I haven’t heard about it before but upon entering the town, we quickly saw this huge statue of the Hindu god Shiva. I later discovered it was the second-tallest Shiva statue in the world.
The statue and temple are very prominent in the town and located on a hill on the coast of the Arabian Sea. Needless to say, this gives you a gorgeous view over the Indian coastline from the temple.
However, what interested me the most was the small fish market located directly next to the temple. It was early in the morning and the fishermen where just starting to bring the fish in. They were very open to us foreigners coming over to have a look and it’s one of my great Indian experiences.
