A small town located 200 km from Mumbai, Harihareshwar had long been popular as an important pilgrimage town. It was only a few years ago that it gained the reputation of a quiet weekend getaway from Mumbai. The 16th century temple at Harihareshwar is located right on the beach. And it is these beaches which has made it popular with city-wallahs looking for an escape. Long, shallow and wide, these pristine beaches are ideal for swimming. The backdrop of the Konkan coastline adds its own charm to this scene.

Such is the importance of the temple located here, that Harihareshwar is also known as the Kashi of the South. The hill on the seashore at Harihareshwar is also known as 'Harihar' or 'Pushpadri'. The temple consists of idols of Brahma - Vishnu - Mahesh and Devi Parvati. The + more about Harihareshwar

Advice from travelers on what to do in Harihareshwar

Raju Iyer on 20 Feb 2011

The MTDC at Harihareshwar has good rooms, special AC / Non AC which are large and roomy, the Konkani Cottages ... Good, Tent accomodation, good view but too small. Restuarant has a great view overseening the bay from where if you are lucky one can see the dolphins between 7 & 9 am. Food is decent. Bed tea comes at 7 am only. No Liquour available in Harihareshwar, so if you want your sundowner, come stocked. The Bagmandala beach is close by and and since it is in the bay is safe for swimming unlike Harihareshwar beach near the temple which is dangerous for swimming. A trip to Bankot Fort just to get a breathtaking birdeye view is worthwhile. But you have to take the ferry to cross over to Bagmandala village.. 9.30, 10.30, 11.30...from Harihareshwar side and 9, 10, 11... from Bagmandala side. Shrivardhan beach too is lovely. The sea erosion carving on the hillside near Harihareshwar is mind zapping..Nature Art.
