Malvan is a town in Sindhudurg District, the southernmost district of Maharashtra. This culturally
and historically important town is a Taluka place in Sindhudurg District. Malvan taluka consists of villages Aangnechi wadi, Achra, Khalchi Devli, Jamdul, Juva, Pankhol and Sarjekot. Malvan is wellknown for its historical monument, the Sindhudurg fort, which is beautiful and vast in area. Malwani Folk are very hardworking and helpful. The main occupation here is fishing. The staple diet of Malvani people is fish and rice.It is also known for its variety of mangos (Malvani Hapus Alphonso). Sweets such as Malvani Khaja
(Made from Gram besan flour and coated jaggery) and Malvani Ladoos are famous across the state.A
very important part of Malavni culture is a Malvani Dashavtar, a dramaplay based on mythological stories.There are many interesting places to visit in Malvan and this can be noticed with the recent increase in forieng visitors to this region.
The name of this fort is given to Sindhudurg district. Tourists from all over the world visit this great sea fort.Sindhudurg was built with the help of huge rocks on the ‘Kurte' island, which amazes people, and one appreciates the vision and foresight of “Great Maratha King Shivaji “.
Bharadi devi :-
Bharadi Devi(goddess) is one goddess one just can't think of missing when one is in Malvan.This is the famous “active goddess” situated at Anganewadi, 14 kms from Malvan. Angnewadi is the small hamlet of Masure village. The Bharadi devi (goddess) is very famous for her wishfulfilling power. Devotees express their wish before her and once the wish is fulfilled they come to express their gratitude
Witness the Water World:-
Tarkarli Beach : Tarkarli is a narrow stretch of beach with pristine waters, located at the convergence of the
Karli River and the Arabian Sea. This place has gained prominence because of its transparently clear seas,
where on a fairly sunny day, one can see the sea bed up to a depth of 20 feet. This beach can be rightly called as ‘Queen Beach’ of Sindhudurg. Sea and sand blending in enchanting natural harmony, gracefully cruising boats in calm and cool river waters add to the beauty of this beach.
Some destinations own such historical peculiarities which sets them apart from other ones.Place named Achara is one of them. It’s a small village in Malvan Taluka. We are all aware that in historical times people were gifted with “Inams, Jagirs or Watan(land)” by kings or emperors for their achievements.
Achara too is Inam or Jagir, but it’s owner or Inamdar (landowner) is not a layman. Chhatrapati Shambhu
Raje of Kolhapur gave this Inam to Shri Dev Rameshwar ( i.e. Lord Shiva). Achara boasts the historical
temple of Lord Shiva, popularly known as ‘inamdar Shri Dev Rameshwar’ Architecture of the temple is grand and spectacular.
Parshuram Temple :-
In this village(Achara) there is a well known temple of Bhagwan Parshuram because of it this village got this name. Tourists who want to enjoy natural beauty of this area should reserve some
time during the trip.People here used to know time from the sound from cannon. This temple is an excellent example of ancient sculpture. The atmosphere of this temple fascinates everyone. Calm and beautiful nature and idol of Parshuram made up of black stone and other idols charming appearance take us in different world. The building of this temple is also an excellent example of architecture.
The Architectural marvel:-
1) The 200m long, undersea/underland tunnel from the fort to the Dhulap’s palatial house in the village is manmade. The roof of the tunnel has been pinched to protect it from landslides and it is also well ventilated. Now the tunnel is partially blocked. Using latest technology if this tunnel is cleared it will be a
major tourist attraction and will be of great help for architectural students/history lovers.
2) The fencing compound wall constructed at 810 m depth undersea, 300ft from the fort is another architectural wonder. The wall constructed with laterite stones is 122 mtr long, 3 mtr high & 7 mtr in breadth.Majority of attacking ships met their watery grave after colliding on this wall as this wall is not visible above the sea level.
