Attractions In Ratnagiri

Parashuram Temple
The famous Parashuram Temple is located near Chiplun, Ganapatipule and Pavas. It attracts many visitors. A few caves in the Chiplun, Khed, Dabhol, Sangameshwar, Gauhani Velgaum and Vade Padel also deserve visiting.

Ganapatipule
Ganapatipule is an ancient pilgrim center, located about 25 kms from Ratnagiri district. This beautiful sea town is rich in history. Ganapatipule is around 375-km away from Mumbai. There is also a mysterious Swayambhoo (a naturally formed idol) of Ganapati in a temple at Ratnagiri.

This small and sacred village is uninfluenced by commercialism. The 6 kms long virgin beach on the exotic Konkan coastline adds to the scenic beauty of the village. Ganapatipule is one of the `Ashta Ganapatis' (eight Ganpatis) of India and is called the "Paschim Dwar-Dewata" (Western Sentinel God).
