Sawantwadi

Sindhudurg , Maharashtra

Sawantadi is one of the towns in theKonkan belts of Maharashtra that remind you of one of the beautiful villages of Goa. A town that is situated in the Sindhudurg ditrict of Maharashtra this is a place that is Konkani to the very bone. Every part of this town smacks of Konkani flavour. Surrounded by the verdant greenery and forests on three sides and guarded by the Arabian sea on the fourth side, Sawantwadi is one of the places that make you feel you are at home, if you are a lost soul. This is a place that is perfect for the nature lovers and is an absolute treat to your senses. It is a hidden but gorgeous part of the state. Sawantwadi is one of the important towns and is the centre of trade for all the neighbouring towns and villages. You will get a very strong Konkani and rural flavour but you will also get some of the best produces of the land. Coconut, Cashew nut, Areca nut, fish, and wonderfully crafted wooden articles are some of the things that are found in abundance here. Another feature of this place is that the forests surrounding it has a large number of medicinal plants which are surprisingly well preserved and give you a sense of peace and calm like no other place. The Sawant Bhonsale dynasty was instrumental in foreseeing and creating the township almost 300 years ago. Sawantwadi province, last ruled by King Shivaji Raje Bhonsale continued independently even after Independence of India for almost 8 years. Thus there are many marks of the royalty that can be found here. Yet what will truly steal your heart is the “Shilpa Gram” which is the place where the artistry of this place is showcased. A place that produces some of the best wooden artwork and pottery, these should definitely be added to your collection.
