This temple is just 50 meters away from Mahabaleswara temple. Its situated just on middle of the main road. This is not very huge and nothing special in it. But you can visit this while visiting Mahabaleswara temple.

There is nothing special about it, but the temple is close to the main Gokarna temple. If you have time, visit this place. Please note parking lot is near the beach. So, you will have to walk the distance.

Lord Ganapati temple is located very close to Mahabaleswar temple. Ganapati has played the trick to get the aatmalinga from Ravana and hence his temple was setup here as symbol of gratitude. It is very thinly crowded compared to Mahabaleswar temple.
