We fell upon this Temple while searching for Jaigad lighthouse. If you will look from the top, you will just see a dilapidated temple but don't let it dishearten you. Go down and take further stairs on the right to reach the little piece of...More

The ancient Shiva Temple is 1200 years old as told by the priest. The Temple shows signs of neglect as it is falling apart. Walk down a few steep stairs from around the temple and you will be greeted by the amazing sea waves crushing...More

Karhateshwar Mandir is a beautiful serene place, a surprise at the end of a road. You have to climb down a few steps to reach this typical Konkan style temple of lord Siva. Two sides of the temple compound, which is elevated at a few...More

There is nothing architecturally magnificent about the temple, but it is the atmosphere and the sea view that makes it so pleasant. There are a few ancient statues too but not sure of their origin. A long flight of stairs go down to the temple...More
