Marikamba Temple Reviews & Ratings
Very nice temple in the heart of the city It has nice painting on the walls Not crowded. So it's very enjoyable visit Temple has dedicated parking space near by. With ₹10 per hour nominal fee.
1. Really a must visit temple. It looks very grand from outside as well as interiors. Idol looks super grand. Goddess is known to be powerful. Temple is very spacious. Steps towards temple is having slow water flow for quick pouring of water to foot. 2. There's a dedicated 4W parking area near temple which accommodates ~20 cars. Parking charge is rs.10 per car irrespective of number of hours you park. 3. There are few restaurants nearby for quick food but there's no hygiene.
Spiritual place for devotees. Number of people visit to see the architecture and to feel the Divinity here. Don't miss the sacred Majestic Buffalo present in this place. Donations are accepted. Has a wonderful story and a historical importance. Mahatma Gandhi ji has visited the place during Salt strike. Post that Sacrifice of buffalo stopped. Once in two years procession and celebration of jatra is a treat to eyes. Huge numbers of devotees flood the town.
Very divine temple. Gives feeling of wholeness. The Seva rupees are very low and are much affordable
Very famous temple...situated in the city centre. Constructed in. 16th century... One special thing about temple is ...main goddess ideal is not made with stone but wood.so no abhishekas performed here .. Generally every day evening devotional programs arranged here .
