Malvan, Tarkarli

Malvan is a town and taluka in Sindhudurg District, Maharashtra State, India. It is well known for the historically important Sindhudurg Fort. Malvan taluka consists of villages such as Aangnechi wadi, Achra, Khalchi Devli, Jamdul, Juva, Pankhol and Sarjekot. The main occupation here is fishing with the staple diet of the local people fish curry and rice. Malvan is a compact town situated on the coast of Western India and boasts some beautiful beaches.

This area of the Konkan is predominantly Hindu and the majority of these Hindus are Kshatriya, Maratha, Bhandari & Gabit. ‘Anganewadi Jatra’ and ‘Bramhan Dev Jatra’ are major festivals in the region. A number of Malvani emigres return to their native place every year during the months of August-September to attend ‘Ganeshotsav’, ‘Ram Navmi’ and various other festivals. Due to its relatively clear sea waters, Malvan serves as a perfect spot for scuba diving and snorkeling.
