  • Excellent place to visit in monsoon... The ideal location for the lord Mahadev abode... Just loved it...
  • Awesome waterfall, it used to surround so many snakes in previous days. Now you hardly find any snake here
  • Marleshwar is known for the Cave Shiva Temple, where devotees handle venomous snakes.every year thousands of devotees visit the temple and perform ablutions in the nearby Bav river. Dhareshwar is a waterfall on the Bav river which is another tourist attraction of Marleshwar.
  • Best place for one day holiday. The best part is the that road nh17 from ratnagiri
  • Temple is situated in natural cave. You can see beautiful waterfalls in rainy season. You have to climb stairs for about 20 min. to reach Temple. Temple is surrounded by mountains from three sides. You have to drive carefully as road is curvy n condition of road is not good.
