we hit the road – destination murudeshwara furth south into karnataka . takes about 2 hours from gokarna , fairly easy kinda one road straight there . you turn off at this gateway and follow the road in towards the temple

we ate at naveen on the beach , was very average food and the waiters had such bad attitudes , arguing loudly with us about how many gobi manchurian we ordered and trying [and failing] to force us to take extra food cos they made mistakes ! then chucking all their rubbish into the sea over the balconys ! needless to say they got told they where well out of order and the manager gave them a right roasting for it after we explained what had happened upstairs . just screams ‘tourist trap’ , we should have known by location . the food wasnt even that good !
