From Kasturighat of Cox’s Bazar, you can go by trawler or speed boat to Gorakghata a ghat near Adinath Temple. The temple is 10.50 metres in length, 9.75 metres in width, and 6 metres in height. The temple is divided into three parts.  In its first part there are two square worship rooms with 3.35 square metres each. In the east-room there is Banlingo Shiva Statue, and in the west room Austo-Vuja Durga Statue. There is a heresay that one influential Noor Mohammad Sikder of Maheshkhali dreamt a stone and then after the name of the stone, the island was named as Maheshkhali and then Mandap (pavilion) was named as ‘Adinath Temple.’ Every year on the occasion of Shiva Chaturdoshi a big Mela (fair) is held for 8-10 days at ‘Adinath Temple.’ Many pilgrims from India Nepal and Myanmar including Bangladesh come here.
