Karhateshwar Temple.
Sufficient parking is available at Karhateshwar Temple.
As you walk toward the temple you see the main entry gate it is called Audumber Dwar, It is an arched gate. The top of the arch has a flag pole. At the bottom of the arch hangs a bass bell.
The Audumber gate has a unique design, the top portion looks like a Viking helmet with horns!!
Karhateshwar Temple is built on a sloping hill where the hill slope culminates at the beach and the sea. Two level areas had to be dug out of the hill face to enable the construction of the temple.
Stone-paved stairs start at the Audumber Dwar and go right down to the sea shore where an underground perennial sweet water stream is channelled through a Goumukh to fill a Kund. (Goumukh : Cow mouth : hollow stone statue of a cow head. Where an underground stream flows out through the Goumukh). Devotees wash their feet and hands and freshen up, some who re more devoted take a bath with Kund water before going for darshan in the temple.
Passing through Audumber gate, as you start descending, you pass near an old Audumber tree, after which the Audumber gate seems to have been named.
We decided to first go and visit the Kund. The stairs are fully shaded by the thick and dense trees going all around. The climb / descent is a bit steep and the number of steps is also a fair amount. Those with knee trouble may find it a bit difficult. The water of the stream is cold and potable. One feels quite freshened up after washing the face n that water. Good view of the sea. The seashore is rocky in the area around the Kund. On the climb back to the temple I was intrigued by the ruins of what appeared like the ramparts of a fort along the seashore. Wanted to explore it but it was difficult and inaccessible so just continued the climb and reached the temple.
Temple is an ancient temple. It is commonly accepted that it was built during the reign of Shaliharas.( 765 to 1029 CE).
The architecture of this temple is unique. It is the first and only kind I have seen so far.
It is a long rectangular building with a split two-tiered roof covered with clay tiles. There are no domes or shikhara which house the Garbha Graha, The Sabha Graha. Such domes and shikhara are the traditional, standard features of all the temples all over India. Ther are missing here.
Once inside, the rectangular hall is sort of partitioned into three parts. A small built-in Garbha Graha, a Sabha Graha, and bit larger assembly hall. The roof is supported by teak pillars. These pillars are plain square in shape, very plain, and simply devoid of any designs or engravings, Such simplicity in this temple built of wood was another feature I found strange. This uniqueness and simplicity is what sets this temple apart and make it unique.
On the upper tier dug out in the hill slope there are some rooms. The room which is closest to the stairs is Ganesh Mandir. It has a small but beautiful idol of Ganesh carved in white marble.
The thick forest all around, and the remoteness of the temple from any habitat ensures the quite serenity of the temple.
One can have a blast here, a picnic with kids and family near the Gomukh Kund 😊
It was a good place to visit. A temple with a difference.

We visited this temple in December 2021. When you arrive and park your car it seems like some random old temple you would find in any village but my friend you would be blown by the beauty of this place once you start descending through the stairs. Few stairs down there is a small and very old temple of Lord Shiva. The place is very peaceful, calm and you could easily spend some time inside the temple, filling up your energy vibes. Then you can further go down the stairs and there it is the wide open sea with trees all around. You can sit on the stairs in silence and just enjoy listening to the waves crashing against the wall and going back. It is truly meditative just being there. Also, there is Gomukh over there from which a slow stream of water is coming out. This place is a hidden gem and definitely worth your time.

We fell upon this Temple while searching for Jaigad lighthouse. If you will look from the top, you will just see a dilapidated temple but don't let it dishearten you. Go down and take further stairs on the right to reach the little piece of heaven. It is so beautiful that it takes your breath away. There is a fresh water source in form of small well where water is coming from inside the mountain. It is fresh, clean and refreshing. Then there is a small beach which is very beautiful with palm trees and blue green water. You can just sit there for hours enjoying the place it is so beautiful. You can carry picnic basket and enjoy picnic there but lack of toilet facilities could cause issue. However a small visit is a must. But I will recommend that you wear your footwear while going down if you have sensitive feet like mine.
My recommendation is that it is must visit place.

A little hard to find but a little bit of asking around would take you there. The temple is run-down and nothing out of the ordinary. However, to the right of the temple is the sea-as blue as it could be. With rocks. Red. If you've visited Anjuna beach before they polluted the view with those annoying tetrapods, you would know exactly what I am talking about. Serene, calm and an ideal place to idle your time by, the only eyesore are rocks being dumped into the sea by Jindal Steel, most probably with the intention of building a factory on the reclaimed land (I'd be happy to be proven wrong). Go and spend some alone time here before profit-mongers turn the sea black.

The ancient Shiva Temple is 1200 years old as told by the priest. The Temple shows signs of neglect as it is falling apart. Walk down a few steep stairs from around the temple and you will be greeted by the amazing sea waves crushing on the rocks with the swaying Palm trees at the background. Worth a visit.
