    About Kunkeshwar Temple

    img-responsive

    The story of this temple is very interesting. It is said that this temple was built by a muslim sailor. Once, this sailor was sailing through the arabian sea. Suddenly the waves were uncontrollable and his ship was sure to capsize. At a distance, he saw a lamp and prayed to it saying "I do not know who you are but if I live, I will build a shrine for you" Suddenly, the ship held steady and the sailor landed at Kunkeshwar shore. He searched for the lamp and found a shivaling. True to his promise, he built a temple. The sailor knew that his community will never accept him for building a Hindu temple and worshiping there. He was ostracized by his community. In fact, his king had already decided the death penalty for such an act. So he committed suicide after jumping from the temple roof. His tomb is still situated nearby and he is honored as a great devotee. Architecture:- This temple is built on the banks of Arabian Sea in the 12th century. Festivals/Prayers:-Mahashivaratri is best time to visit this temple as the festival is celebrated with thousands of devotees.
