The temple is dedicated to Shiva and the Pandavas established it on a no moon night in Bhadra Month.
The Shivling becomes visible only when the waves subside.
Desh Gujarat reports
Shivlinga of God Shankar was established on an island, over the sea about 3 km to the east of Koliyak. This temple can be reached only at specific day and time. It has to be noted that the place gets inundated under the tide so the visitors should leave the place before 1:00 pm.
The event also coincides with traditional fair, wherein thousands of village communities participate.
