Kunti Temple =only in Gujarat
by abboral boral on Jun 27, 2009 10:25 AM  | Hide replies

on 13.6.09 ,Myself and my son went to a unique place some 210 km from Ahmedabad called Devi Mogra temple .Legends says that panvas along woth Kunti used to stay this place for 2 years and before actual temple there is another temple where Panvas took rest for a while .
Mata kunti used to workship one deity given by local tribal people some 5500 years ago and I was surprised to see the diety still exist and tribal populations from Maharastra,Madyapradesh ,Gujarat come in large no particularly on sunday .We too faced tremendous trouble to get in .Tibals offer here large no of hen,goat and farm products .

Our route was

1. By bus Ahmedabad to dediapara via Rajpipla --210 km --5 hours journey in which some 30 km magnificient ghat road journey comparable to himalayas roads

2. We stayed at Dediapara in Bharat Sevasshram Guest House .Swamiji of the Ashram has done tremendous job by giving shelter to some 70 tribal students with fooding lodging .This ashram is wonderfull place to stay .we stayed for saturday night and had very good foods supplied by the Ashram .The ashram itself a scenic beuty amidst backdrop of hills
3. Sunday morning we ventured out for 22 km ghat road journey (I have never seen such ghat roads with too much high and low roads with sharp bend .

We were there in Devi Mogra temple ,the only temple in India called Kunti Temple as well .
You must visit this place once

I was in Goa for 3 years and I can say that I used to enjoy mansoon in Goa .It is mesmarising Goa during rainy season as entire hilly region of Goa looks green and green and with continious rain pouring in Goa ,it is really enjoyable sitting in a hotel lobby or some village house (village people rent house for 2 / 3 days in Goa ) having one glass of UDAK or Fenny and fish curry rice with mackral fish fry

The smell of that goan cuisine still moving arround my nostril and senses .So majestic and alcoholic Goa during rainy day and riding by bus or car from Panaji to Kakoda,Sarvadem,madgao,cortalim ,salcete,vasco ,paolem sea beach is simply unforgetable and last but not the majestic wild life in Goa
I think people visit goa to see only temple ,sea beach ,church ,good food ,fenny but real Goa lies in wild life ,There are 4 to 5 wild life sanctuaries which I am sure if you spend a night will never be forgotten
1.Cotigao wild Sanc,86 sq km , canacona(south goa--from margao 30 km towards paolem sae beach,one of the lovely beach in GOA _)--Asstt conservator of forest ,panaji 0832-2229701 ,or ccf 0832-2224747--for booking of cottage Rs 400 to 500
2.Bhagwan mahavir sanc ,240 sq.km,molem (from Ponda 20 km ),nearby Dudhsagar water falls --room Rs 500 to 800 ,0832-2612238 /2612319, mob no--09822130330
3.Bondla wild Sanc --20sq. km (from Usgaonkar ,south Goa 10 km --booking CCF-0832-2224747 /2229701/2610022
4.Netravali wild life sanc extreme south of goa --21 sq.km --

India was using the Miles system (Remember, the mile system is not America's standard, but it was British standard brought to India by British) till 1956 and there are many places in India, which still uses the Mile system.
