Cozy Canopy: Natural thicket formed
by the roots of trees and shrubs. A cool and shady area to relax, unaffected by
the sun’s heat at any time of the day.
Mystery Creek: A crack in the rocks
formed by an earthquake several million years ago. It is believed that Lord
Narasimha made his way through this long creek leading to a cave near the
temple, which is how the temple was named. This is a good place to spot otters,
locally called “ Neer Nai”.
Narasimha Temple: A temple
dedicated to Lord Narasimha built several years ago on the top of the island.
Devotees visit this temple shrine for an annual yatra in January.
Abandoned Tower: Built years ago
with the idea of utilizing it as a lighthouse. Another neighbouring island (Devgad
Island) deeper into the sea was found more suitable and hence this tower was
abandoned. The suitability of this tower to hoist a windmill and generate
adequate power for the island’s needs is being considered.
Fort walls & Canons: Many kings of
different dynasties, including those of the Vijayanagar Empire, Bijapur and
Sonda kings, have ruled this island. In AD 1705, Basalinga Nayak of Sonda fought
a battle with the British from this island.
"Yo"You catch, we cook “. Our chef promises to do just that. There are several
spots for fishing around the island – either the patient way, with bamboo
fishing rods or with a fishing net, which is cast into the sea in the evenings
and early morning. Our staff will point out the fish frequently caught, on our
fish poster at the restaurant.
