Bheemeshwara Waterfalls

Bheemeshwara is a Shiva temple which is a heaven for nature lovers, for many obvious reasons, mountains of Western Ghats lie vast as far as eyes can see. According to the tale, Shiva Linga was established by Bheema of Pandavas during his Agnaatavasa to honor this deed a temple was built here for his name which is the Bheemeswara Temple. The fascinating Bheemeshwara waterfall formed when Arjuna used his arrow to extract water from the rocks and it’s situated just next to the temple.
This temple located 5kms from the Kogar-Bhatkal road; the initial approach starts with delightful walk through the mud road inside the pristine forests which covers the sky and filial destination goes through paved Stone steps. Its tough approach would cause to safe from crowd; so we can sense here the serenity and calmness inside the temple without any disturbance.
This is the good place for to do meditation here always I feel calm in the lap of nature I feel the cool blowing air, hear the water pouring down over the richly colored rock, perceiving the Sweet birds’ singing so softly that makes to feel relaxed and delighted. I feel calm and inspired in every time I visit, it’s a best place to feel the real tranquility from the restless stress life.
The specialty of Bheemeshwara waterfalls is that the water never dries out through out the year. On MahaShivarathri, there will be a huge Puja offered to the Lord by the local people every year.
Bheemeshwara waterfall looks like the ones in the fairy tales - the water cascades from tiny droplet and falls down like a soft silk. Add to this the playful sun’s rays will create an unbelievable tint of piece and beauty. The sight is so marvelous and relaxing that even the worst thoughts and the gloomiest mood disappear in no time.
