See a once-center of Buddhism, now a Hindu temple in the cave at Ekvira Devi Temple. The Goddess Ekvira is worshipped in the caves by the Koli fishermen community and the local tribes. Participate in the festivals organized here, ranging from traditional dances to folk musical festivals, all in the name of the Hindu goddess. The somewhat tiring climb is eased by ample shops for refreshment and resting areas, and rewarded with spectacular view from the temple. Be careful of the monkeys and protect your valuables.

  • Nice place.... Very nice view during rainy season.... Very nice caves.... Very nice structures and statues made in rocks... Very nice for people who don't do exercise because there are many steps to reach there which is good to health. Its a very fresh environment....
  • You will feel mesmerized, if you visit here in monsoon. The environment is so soothing and you will enjoy the trek till temple. View from the top is incredible. Beside the temple there are caves which you can explore, but for that you need to get tickets.
  • Beautiful temple of Ekvira devi is just awesome. And temple situated on top of mountain so views from temple are fabulous. And historical caves are also beautiful & one of the reason to visit. They are also best. If you want to visit this place then rainy season or winter is best to visit because of waterfalls are also beautiful here.
