  • kanakeshwar i.e. "SUN" kanak means gold and it is very bight and precious as god sun is called Kankeshwar there are very few Sun temples in inida one is Konark in orissa and another in Modhera gujarat in Maharashtwra there are very few The idol is in Black Gnndaki stone and very bright eyes and very immpressive body language are the prominent features. The roof of main Temple is covered with copper sheets as it shines brightly then in the Sabhamandap is decorated by beautiful craft paper flowers during festivals
  • It is very rare that one can visit a temple dedicated to the Sun God, This nice temple is situated in a small town with beautiful surrounding and is close to Ratnagiri on one side and Rajapur on other. From Ratnagiri you can also visit two nice beaches very close to the road
  • Those who Wana go to this temple temple use shortcut from pawas. When you reach near Shri swarupanand ask the route towards adivare. Please maintain it's cleanliness.
  • Beautiful temple and glorious idol of Lord Sun.
  • Temple dedicated to Sun God, Shri Kanakaditya. Temple is rejuvenated maintaining old beauty. Motorable road right up to temple. Temple committee has built a huge 'Bhakta Niwas' (lodging facility). Local food is available.
