These are few pics of our family temple Sri Laxminarasimha Swamy Devasthanam @ Veling, Mardhol , Ponda District, Goa. Clicked them during my last trip to Goa. which also happens to be one of the most memorable ones. 🙂 . I wanna pen down a lot bout the trip but haven’t found the time to do so.. but am sure i will in due course. I just couldn’t resist updating these pics first coz this happens to be our family temple. The tag line is in Konkani.. “Amgel Kuldev” which translates into “Our Kuldev” or “Our Family God”. This temple is found in a small town in the Ponda District. Its just off the Goa-Belgaum Highway.. Am not quite sure if the town is Veling or Mardhol.. The way to the temple has a beautiful canopy of trees for about a km from the National Highway. I just love visiting this place and its got a special feel in the monsoons however this last visit was in the scorching summer heat 😉 . The whole story of the main deity of this temple is beautifully shown on the pictures which adorn the main sanctum however it was closed during this visit so i couldn’t get any decent clicks. I wish i could type down the entire story here but then i found a whole lot of information is already available on the Wiki.
Note : Thanks to Mr.Prakash Bhandary, Managed to obtain the contact number for the temple manager.. 0832 2343428 Mr. Shivananda.
