I wonder how many Gomateshwara Statues are there in India and especially in Karnataka. I know at least four of them in the State. By the time, we reached the Gomateshwara Statue, it was dark and mobile photography became impossible. My Sony A5100 came in handy; I could manage somewhat good Gomateshwara Photographs.
If you guys are planning here, ensure to reach this place before dark or during the sunset for beautiful photographs. It is a religious as well as tourist place that should not missed when in Karkala.
