The Harihareshwara Temple at Harihar in Karnataka state, India, was built in c. 1223 - 1224 CE by Polalva, a commander and minister of the Hoysala Empire King Vira Narasimha II. In 1268 CE, Soma, a commander of King Narasimha III of the same dynasty made some additions. The temple houses the deity Harihara, a fusion of the Hindu Gods Vishnu and Shiva. The image of the deity is a fusion of the right vertical half of Shiva and left vertical half of Vishnu. The image holds in its right hand, the attributes of Shiva and in the left hand, those of Vishnu.
Bankot fort : The name Bankot is derived from "Bavanna Kot" a Marathi phrase meaning fifty-two forts. Shivaji Maharaj captured this tiny fort and added it to Swarajya, which was the fifty second fort and hence the name "Ban Kot". It is a coastal area on the Arabian Sea with attractive beaches.
Velas is a small village located on the banks of river Savitri and is at the northernmost end of Ratnagiri district. Olive Ridley turtles come here annually to lay their eggs and thus this is a major tourist attraction.

Anjarle is known for the Kadyawarcha Ganpati temple (Marathi: Ganapati on a cliff). This temple was originally constructed using wooden pillars ca. 1150. It was renovated between 1768 and 1780. The idol at this temple differs from most other representations of the elephant-headed god, in that its trunk curves right, rather than the usual left. This is known as a Ujwya Sondecha Ganpati (Marathi: right-trunked Ganpati). The temple has a stone staircase on the right to reach the top of the temple (the Kalas), which has a commanding view of the surrounding coconut and betel nut trees, the nearby Suvarnadurg Fort, the Arabian Sea and surrounding hills. Beside the temple to Ganesh is a small temple to Lord Shiva.
