PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

These images were installed in 1779 A.D. by one Parachure from Guhagar near Chiplun. Before the images were installed a rock was worshipped on the same spot as a 'swayambhu’ image of the god.Coming out of the temple one finds in the same court yard a small Hanuman temple in front of the main shrine. To the north is a small Ganesh shrine that houses a Ganesh image with the trunk turned towards the right and a female image locally known as that of Ganga. Behind the Parashurama temple there is a small structure devoted to Renuka his mother. Nearby is a kund known as Bandganga, supposedly created by Parashurama with his arrow-Bana. This is all that the enclosure contains.

When the temple was first established here no one knows. A very popular tale can, however, be recounted This spot was a jungle used for grazing cattle.
