About 350 years ago, Shri. Damodar Swami created a pool which is now known as Atmeshwar Tali. Atmeshwar Tali is a crystal clear water source, available for all 365 days of year. The Swamiji threw his Trishul while enchanting mantra of "Jay Mate Bhagirathi (Ganga)". On the very place a big stream of water appeared and it's flowing perpetually from that day. With the passage of time, this place too is affected by hasty and unmindful modernization. There is a ancient temple called as Atmeshwar Temple of Lord Shiva. It is a unique example where two Shiva lings are placed in one temple. It is a grace of god to Sawantwadi and its citizens.
Sawantwadi does not have an airport. The nearest airport is Dabolim Airport. It is also connected by railways and roadways with regular buses from other major cities of the country coming to Sawantwadi.
