Why to visit Kunkeshwar Beach

Kunkeshwar Beach - Kunkeshwar Temple, an ancient Shiva Temple, is located 14 kilometres from Devgad town in Kunkeshwar hamlet. The splendour of the temple environs is enhanced by a clean beach with a lengthy stretch of shoreline and white sand.

This lovely seaside temple has enticing architecture that is evocative of South Indian temple architecture. This temple was built in 1100 A.D. by the Yadav Kings.

Every year, on the festival of Mahashivratri, a large celebration takes place, bringing religious beliefs into the public front.
