This is a very famous temple in Malvan taluka. Various theories are told to explain the origin of the temple. One of them is that a cow belonging to one of the villagers used to discharge milk in the greenwood which turned into a plaque. When the owner went out to look for the cow, he found the matter. On the same day, he got a divine message in his dream. He started to worship that stone of plaque. The word sprayed and people have since been visiting the place annually. Since the plaque was found in rocky soil (Bharad) the goddess comes to be known as Bharadi. Bharadi Devi is famous for her wish-fulfilling(Navas) power. Her devotees express their wish(Navas) before her and once the wish is fulfilled, they come again for her Darshan(visit) to express their gratitude. The annual fair of this temple wherein musical, dance, drama and folk art events are conducted invites crowds across the state.
