WAGESHWAR TEMPLE (TONDAVALI)

This old Temple sits amidst of Tondavali which is 24 Kms away from Malvan. A Shivlingam located in a cave of a big rock. Lots of people come on each Monday to worship the Shivlingam. The legend behind this says that in old days Tondavali area was completely under the sea. When a sailor threw his net for fishing it got hooked up. Sailor could not pick up his net so he kept it and came on next day to search. He found a Shivalingam trapped in the net. After some years by the storage of sand, a belt of land was formed on the same location. The sailors built a Temple over the location with their own contribution. On the back side of Temple there was a bushy jungle with wild animals. People says that in old days tigers came in the Temple but never disturbed any mankind. So the Temple is known as Wagheshwar Temple. Just beside the Temple there is a big rock in which a cave of size 80 Sq ft is carved. Many tourists come in Tondavali to visit this religious & beautiful tourist spot.
