Shri Wageshwar Temple situated in Malvan is a
beautiful temple devoted to Lord Shiva. As per one of the legends, a sailor
came across a Shivalinga while rowing his boat and after a few days the region
where the deity was found was elevated with its surface was exposed. Therefore,
the locals decided to construct a temple and protect the environment of the
region as it is a known natural habitat of tigers. It is believed that the
tigers here are not aggressive and do not attack humans and hence, the temple was
named as Wageshwar Temple.
