Vakalghar – वाखळघर

There are five water tanks here. It is said that when the holy river Ganga descended on earth at Rajapur in Ratnagiri district, it also descended at this spot. The tanks have steps to go down to the water�s edge. Behind are the two temples, one of Mahadev and the other of Ganga Yamuna. There are two sets of statues of Ganga-Yamuna, one made out of marble is larger and the other is smaller and kept outside. Ganga appears only at specific times, probably because of seismic movements. It has become a great place of pilgrimage of devotees. Away from habitation and in the lap of a mountain, it is a calm spot and ideal for a picnic lunch.
