Gangeshwar Temple

Gangeshwar Temple is situated 3 kms away from Diu in Fudam Village. Shivlinga known as Gangeshwar is seen in the midst of the rocks on the seashore. As it is situated on the beach, the gentle sea waves offering their obeisance to the “Shiv Lingas” in stone have a mystic aura around them in the cave temple of Gangeshwar where the Lord makes his presence felt. It is believed that the 5 Pandavas during their exile worshiped Lord Shiva in this temple.
