Pradakshina Marg

The 'pradakshina marg' around the Harihareshwar temple is one of the most interesting part of the temple. The 'pradakshina marg' starts off right behind the temple with about sixty steps before the 140 narrow steps cut in the cliff down to the sea. The trail goes around the cliff over a natural rock platform with the roaring sea just by the side and comes back in front of the temple. Check with locals about the tide before attempting the 'pradakshina'
