"Torke" ( Kannada ತೊರ್ಕೆ), is a small village in Kumta taluk of Uttara Kannada district, Karnataka, India. This place is about a few square kilometres in extent. Torke traditionally is the amalgamation of Hoskatt, Naranapur, Toregazani, Torke [, Devarabhavi, Hallergudi, Devana and Gonehalli. It has a Gram Panchayat.

The name "Torke" is supposed to have originated from "tore" or the rivulet which used to flow through the village. Local names like "torehalla" and "toregazani" also give credence to this theory. However, since this place is famous for production of salt and a salt maker is also known to be called a "Thoreya" in Kannada, Torke might also have got its name so.
