Bhairi Bhavani Temple, Shringarpur, Sangameshwar, Ratnagiri

Bhairi Bhavani Temple is situated at Shringarpur village of Sangameshwar taluka in Ratnagiri.

Ancient temple of Shri Bhairi Bhavani is situated on the Prachitgad Fort. There are idols of Shri Bhairi (Bhairava), Shri Bhavani, Shri Mahalaxmi and Shri Mahishasurmardini (Pashchimdevata) in this temple. But as there is no paved road to go to the fort, not everyone can go there. So this Shri Bhairi Bhavani temple was built in Shringarpur village at the base of the fort. The idols of four deities at Prachitgad have been enshrined newly in a ritualistic manner in this temple.
