Vengurla is often referred to as the ‘gem’ of the Sindhudurg district. More so because of its rich cultural heritage and its temples dedicated to Shri Devi Sateri and Shri Rameshwar. These are the two most important temples of this region and there are many more, each one with its own unique heritage value and at least one legend attached to it. There is lush green foliage here, mainly of cashew, mango, coconut, and different kinds of berry trees. The hills of Dabhol, and Mochemad lie to its north, east, and south, protecting a traditional way of life that has not yet been corrupted by urban pressures.
