About 12 kms from Chiplun is the Parashuram temple one of the few temples dedicated to the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. There also is a temple dedicated to his mothe Renuka near the main temple.
To reach Velneshwar from any of the major cities one has to get to Chiplun first. From Chiplun Velneshwar is approximately 60 Kms. The 60 kms after Chiplun passes through small rustic hamlets with the narrow winding roads showing you the glimpses of what is in store at the end of the journey. The drive will take about an hour!!
