Kale (Panhala Peta; 16° 40' N; 74° 00' E; p.
2,428,) is 15 miles west of Kolhapur railway station. The village is
said to take its name from the goddess Kali whom, according to a
local legend, Dharma Raja, the eldest of the Pandavas, slew on the
hill near the village. Marks on the hill still make the outline of
Dharma Raja with his arrow fixed in Kali's body. Every Monday a
market is held at which the chief article sold is grain. The holiest
temple which is dedicated to Dharma Raja, is twenty-five feet long
and twelve feet broad.
