Fishing Boats anchored...
.. in the Arabian Sea off Karwar coast, near Kurumgad island.
Once in a year there is a grand annual festival on this once inhabited island.People From Goa & Karnataka flock to this island in January to offer prayers to Lord Narasimha. It is believed that this Half Lion & Half Human diety, Reincarnation of Lord Vishnu in Hindu Mythology, swam accross the sea & made his way to this Island tearing it apart & made it it's abode. The Island has a sweet water pond despite the fact that it is located some nautical miles away from Karwar City in mid Arabian sea.
