Default Unwind Karde.... concluded

Got up early as it was the final morning at Karde for us and wanted to take in as much as possible of the ambiance of a lovely morning on the beach.

Went for long walk on the beach and around 0930hrs set out on the return journey to Mumbai. But had a stop scheduled on the way.

There was this beautiful old temple at Murud Harnai which is just about 2kms from Karde.

Murud is also the hometoen of our great freedom fighter Bharat Ratna Maharshi Dhondu Karve whose bust is erected opposite the Durga Devi temple.

This Durga Devi temple was built almost 300yrs back and the pujari affirmed that his was the 6th generation looking after the temple.

The carved wooden pillars in the temple are beautiful.

There is a large bell at the entrance of the temple. The temple poojary told us that it was brought by Chimaji Appa after winning over the Vasai fort, from one of the churches there.

Had our breakfast at Dapoli and returned to Mumbai via Mandangad covering a distance of 249kms.
The roads were largely good and the traffic minimal. Only in certain patches the road was rough untarred.

Reached Mumbai at 1630hrs after a magical holiday at Karde.
