Durga Temple, Karwar

The 600 years old Durga Temple, which is situated in the Sadashivgad Hill Fort, is another renowned pilgrimage site of Karwar. Sadashivgad lies on the northern bank of the Kali river, about 6 km from the city. According to popular local belief, Raja Shiv Chatrapati found this temple and permitted the local Bhandari population to offer prayers at the site.

While on the way to the Durga Temple, tourists will discover the relics of old fort of Sonda kings. Also known as Shantadurga Temple, it is located close to the 17th century Dargah of Peer Shan Shamsuddin Kharobat. For accommodation, the Department of Tourism has established Yatri Nivas on top of Sadashivgad Hill.
