In & Around Guhagar
Guhagar is a treasure trove of natural beauty, culture and heritage. Renowned as the land of Lord Parshuram, it has several temples that date back to the era of Pandawas and Peshwas as well as impressive forts. Anandibai Peshwa’s maternal home is also in Guhagar.
Steal a glimpse of its culture as you pass by typical Konkan style homes with a brownish red roof, and interact with the simple and friendly natives. The place boasts of 7.5 kms. of pristine beach with sparkling white sands. Ganpatipule, the other popular tourist destination, is just 60 kms. away from here and can be reached in an hour’s time.
Guhagar has many sightseeing spots and most of its prime attractions can be conveniently reached from White Sand Retreat.
The soft sand, azure water, clean shore minus the noisy crowds makes Guhagar Beach a must visit place. Lazily witness the sunset or indulge in parasailing, speed boat or banana boat rides, jet skiing, horse or camel rides. And then, top it with mouth-watering sev puri, paani puri, chaat and refreshing coconut water.
Enjoy a refreshingly peaceful experience at Velneshwar Beach, which is dotted with coconut trees. Its rock less sea water makes wading through it easy. At its entry is the Velneshwar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, a part of whose structure is around 1700 years old, while the remaining part was built in 1960’s and 1970’s.
Hedvi Ganpati Temple
Ancient and rare, this temple is dedicated to Dashbhuja Ganpati. The 3 ft. high Lord Ganesha idol with 10 hands has been carved from flawless white stone and is perched on a 2 ft. high seat. There is a big ceremony celebrating the birth of Lord Ganesha from Shukla Chaturthi to Shashthi in Magh which involves an elaborate procession of the Lord Ganesha idol in a chariot, and is worth seeing.
Durga Devi Temple
Deemed to be one of the oldest temples, the Durga Devi Temple has been restored recently. According to Hindu mythology, the Goddess defeated the evil energies in one night and saved Guhagar. During the war, a pearl from one of her ornaments broke. Even today, the said pearl is in the Goddess’ ornamental collection and occasionally displayed in the main hall.
Established by Lord Parshuram, the Vyadeshwar Temple is built of rock and is fully Panchayatan (there are subordinate shrines in the four corners and the main shrine is in the centre). Within its precinct, there’s a Hanuman and Garuda Temple on either side. Amongst the 5 large Nandis in India, one of them is the Nandi of Vyadeshwar.
Located atop a hill and overlooking the sea, Gopalgad Fort ruins reflect its magnificent past. The view from the top is stunning. A kilometre away from the Gopalgad Fort are the Anjanvel Lighthouse and Talkeshwar Temple. You can visit the lighthouse between 3 and 5 pm.
