This famous temple by the sea is another major centre for tourists and pilgrims. It is one of the India’s twelve jyotirlingas(spontaneously formed Shivalingas).

However, this was just one of the half a dozen times that the temple was destroyed through its history, dating from the pre-Christian era.
