About Veleshwar Temple:

Veleshwar temple is very ancient. The foundation of the temple is strong. The construction is vast and sturdy as it is made out of black stone. From the steps to the dome, the temple is extremely beautiful. Many villagers say that the temple belongs to the era of the Pandavas.

It is also said that, small kids who suffer from Vela (a disease where hands and legs grow so thin that they bend, the stomach swells and the body becomes extremely thin) are brought here and when they drink the Tirth (holy water) of the temple, they become healthy again; hence the name Veleshwar (god who cure vela). In 1885 the temple received charter from the Peshwas. This charter is eternal; the record of this charter can be found in the court of the executive magistrate. Many such historic ties are related to this temple. Ancient temples like these are not just tourist spots in Konkan region, but they are Konkan’s ancient treasure and this treasure must be preserved and cherished.
