Mahabaleshwar Temple This Siva Temple is said to be next in Sanctity only to the Vishwanath Siva Temple in Varanasi. It is often called the Kashi of the South. Hindus come here to perform the Death Rites for departed Ancestors.  According to the Gokarna Purana, “By mere entrance into this Kshetra (Holy Place), one becomes liberated from hundreds of sins, including even Brahmahatya (the killing of a Brahmin)” Moreover, it is said that one becomes free from Rebirth by just looking at the Atmalinga, by hearing the Roar of the Sea or by taking Birth in Kotitirtha.
