India | Maharashtra


Aurundh is a small hamlet on State Highway 123, on the border of Maharashtra almost touching Goa. A channel forms the boundary between the states, which has to be crossed by a ferry. Aurundh is 13 km from Sawantwadi and 35 km from Kudal.

As one approaches the village through the state highway, after deviating from the National Highway 17, one could see the topography gradually changing the ghat section gradually giving way to open plains, rice fields and coconut farms. Malvani Marathi is the local dialect spoken in Aurundh.

Amboli, Vithal Temple, Calapur Lake, Madei Wildlife Sanctuary and the beaches in North Goa District are easily accessible from here.

Goa Airport and Sawantwadi Road Railway Station serve Aurundh.
