The main attraction of this peaceful retreat, which is surrounded by plush greenery, is a huge Shivalinga. Measuring 108 ft, this shivalinga is tallest of its kind in the world and accompanying it is a 35 ft tall Basava, surrounded by lakhs of small shivalingas spread over an area of 15 acres. So far, around 86 lakh shivalingas have been installed. The entire project involves the installation of one crore shivalingas of various sizes, hence the name ‘Kotilingeshwara’.


Kasauli is a small town in the state of Himachal Pradesh located at an altitude of 1,927 m. The town is 77 km from Shimla and 70 km from Chandigarh. Legend says that it came into existence after Lord Hanuman placed his feet here in order to advance on to the Sanjeevani hill. The place where the lord actually kept his feet is believed to be at a hillock which is 300 m high.

Normally one can visit Kasauni at any time but April to June & Saptember to November is the best time. During this season, you can find different colors of nature. Some time light sun shine, some time cloudes and some time rimzim rain. If you want to enjoy snow, visit the town during the off-season (November to February), it is quite likely that you will not come across any person for a long while on your walk. Still, you will be accompanied on your walk by the sweet and soothing voices of the birds along with the gentle rustling of leaves.

Varkala is a town in the Indian state of Kerala, about 50km north of Trivandrum and is home of the popular Papanasam Beach. Varkala is quite a new place to hang out in India and has only been developed as a tourist destination in the last years. Slowly even the north of Varkala Beach gets developed for tourists.

If you're looking for beaches and are fed up with the crowds and prices at Kovalam, then it’s well worth checking out Varkala.

In the off season it’s really mellow and relaxed, swims and sleeps and chill out. Only in December does it get really busy and prices start rocketing till January/February, when it starts to quieter down. The main season starts from Dec 1st- March 31st, with December & early January experiencing the biggest rush.

The nearest International Airport is Trivandrum. State Transport Buses are available from Trivandrum. Bus service available from Varkala to many parts of South Kerala and Kanyakumari. If coming from Trivandrum and Cochin, the better option will be coming by Train. Almost all trains passing by stops at Varkala. From Varkala Railway Station, Taxis and Auto Rickshaws can be hired. Papanasam Beach is around 5km from Varkala Railway Station. (Rs 40/50 by Auto Rickshaw)
