This is a beach town and also a place of worship. The Diveagar Beach is known for its clean sands and white waters. There is not much you can do or explore here but this place is still a very popular weekend getaway especially for Mumbaikars. The Suvarna Ganesha Temple is a famous place of worship and also has an interesting story behind it. Once when there was nothing over here, a lady farmer named Pratibha was busy in her daily work. While ploughing the field she got a copper box which was buried deep down and came up due to repeated ploughing. Inside this box was an idol of Lord Ganesha covered completely with gold and also withe a mask made of gold. The idol weighed about 12 kg. There was then built the temple of the Suvarna Ganesha which is still very popular.
