Since Aruhi is very small, hardly 3 months old, we are covering mostly temples these days and not any beaches or any place which may catch infection to her. Going to this temple, was on our wishlist since a long time. We started from home by 11AM and we were home by 2PM. Sonurli is a small village near Sawantwadi, near to Goa Maharashtra border. It took us around 1 hour to reach the place. The roads are covered with greenery since its monsoons. The Konkan region has very beautiful temples. Best thing is they are spacious and with beautiful architecture.
There is enough place for parking vehicles right in front of the temple. And yes, there is an age old Banyan tree.
To the right of the entrance of the temple, there is a beautiful vrindavan while to the left there is a beautiful deepastambha made out of stones.
