Sakri, the headquarters of the taluka of the same name had 5,364 inhabitants in 1961. The land, though of medium variety grows groundnut and sugarcane well. Being the headquarters of a taluka it has the offices of the mamlatdar, and panchayat samiti, revenue, civil and criminal courts. It has also a police station, a rest house, post and telegraph office, civil and veterinary dispensaries and besides primary schools, a high school. The weekly bazar is held on Sundays. The only temples of any note at Sakri proper are those of Ram and Hanuman. The former of ordinary workmanship, is nearly two centuries old and besides the idols of Ram, Lakshman and Sita, contains one of Ganapati also. The only notable feature of the Hanuman temple located on the outskirts of the town is the idol which is 1.828 metres (6 ft.) in height.

A little over four kilometres from the town of Sakri, at a place called Nagzari, is an old temple dedicated to Nagai goddess. The temple standing on a high bank of the Panjhara, and commanding in the turn a beautiful view of the river as well as the country around, is said to have been built during the period of the Gavali Rajas and hence can be considered to be of considerable antiquity. Its vestibule crowned with a shikhar is very small and contains a stone image of the goddess from under whose feet there is a constant flow of water which finds its way in the kund in front of the temple. The feet of the goddess remain submerged in water. The source of the water is still a mystery. It is probable that it has its source in the Panjhara. Nearby is a dharmashala of the same antiquity. There are also temples dedicated to Hanuman and Gautameshvar, the latter having been recently built. On every Mahashivratra day, a fair attended by the local populace is held in honour of Nagai. The cordage plants with which the place is overgrown add charm to the spot. It has become a favourite resort of picnic goers from nearby places.
