Rameshwar Temple (23km north of Malvan)
Situated deep within the heart of the town Achara, it is a temple of lord Rameshwar worshipped and highly regarded by the locals. Everything carved in this temple is the work of locals some 600 years ago even before the time of Shivaji. Gavpalne is a tradition that is followed here every five years and during this time, the villagers have to reside outside the village. The entire village of Achara has been a gift from Shambhaji Raje, the son of Shivaji to the temple trust or Devastaan. Rameshwar temple has a great political as well as devotional backup and is one of the most influential authorities of the area.
