Asud Map

The 1000 years old Shri Vyaghreshvar Temple is situated on a bank of a river. The Hemad style of architecture is amazing! When we enter the Sanctum Sanctorum from the Asembly Hall, we come across the self-made Shivalinga. The arch of the Sanctum Sanctorum is balanced by beautifully carved wooden pillars. Shri Shankara's Vahan (vehicle), Nandi is carved out of a huge stone and is standing in front of the Shivalinga.. This temple floor has dancer's sculptures on it. The small temple of Kaalbhairava is also here. Shree Vyaghreshvar is Kulswami of many chitpavan, Konkanastha Brahmins, mainly of Ranades.

The entire temple complex is surrounded by stone walls and hills which protect the temple from natural calamities. Outside this stonewall, there is a temple of Gramdevata (Main Village Deity) Jholai Devi. This beautiful temple of Vyaghreshvar finds mention in the novel and movie "Gaarambicha Bapu”.
