Offbeat Sindhudurg

Date : 9-June-2017

Location: Malvan

 Aasamant has arranged an offbeat tour to Sindhudurg where we would be visiting the Petroglyphs (drawings carved into a rock 6000 years before) found in Sindhudurga district, which had been made atop hills on plateaus. The ones already known in Maharashtra are in Barsu, Niwale and Ramroad. Out of these Barsu and Niwale have been studied by experts.

Kudopi & Barsu platue has carvings of various figures of man, fish, bullock.

Another Major Attraction of this Tour is Chitrakathi. It is a unique style of Painting, practised in Pinguli, a small village near Kudal dating back to the 17th century. Painting is done using paper, brush and hand-made colours and in the sequence, based on the story of Mahabharata or Ramayana. The collections of pictures are used to narrate the whole story. The sutradhar (narrator) unfolds the tale in the form of songs supported by the music of the vina, the taal and the huduk.

Alongwith Petroglyphs & Chitrakathi, we also would be visiting few Forts in Sindhudurg Region namely Bharatgad, Ramgad, Bhagwantgad & Kharepatan Forts
