  • Temple located nearĀ Alibag. It's situated on a small hill near the village of Mapgaon. The hill is almost 1200 feet high and one has to climb 700 - 750 steps to reach the temple. The other places to see near Kanakeshwar are the Maruti Temple , Gaymandi (Sculpture of a Cow), Temple of Devi Putrabai, Gaymukh, Brahmakunda and the plateau of Vyaghreshwar (a small temple of Lord Shiva), etc.
  • Enter the spiritual world of Shiva. Located away from city place and peaceful environment. Best to be visited in monsoon. Best view and easy trek. Enjoy local food and drinks at low price. 500+ steps but safe and worth efforts. Give a thumbs upšŸ‘ and reply if my reviews helps you. Your feedback helps me improve and keeps motivated. Thank you.
  • Kanakeshwar - near Alibag is a nice place and famous for cool climate and especially because of old temple of Lord Shiva. The temple is situated on a small hill and the nearby village is ' Mapgaon ' which is almost 12 kms. from Alibag. The hill is almost 1200 feet high and one has to climb 700 - 750 steps to reach the temple. The temple of Kanakeshwar is very beautiful, it is a ' Hoysal ' style structure built in 1764 . A water tank - popular known as 'Pushkarni' - has water almost through out the year. The hill and the surroundings are pretty good to visit. One can feel the hilly region and the forest on the hill.
  • Best place for trekking and the view from the top is breathtaking.
  • Nice place near Alibag for one day outing
