Koteshwar Temple

Koteshwar Temple

This pilgrim spot of Kutch is located near Lakhpat town. The sanctum sanctorum houses a Shiva Linga. The place is closely linked with the great Indian epic Ramayana. According to Hindu mythology, Ravana was bestowed with a Shiva Linga by Lord Shiva. If he worships the linga he will attain immortality. However, he dropped the linga on the ground and there sprouted nearly thousands of lingas. The Koteshwar temple was built at this place.
