We visited APSARA KONDA FALLS on our way back, after visiting Idagunji Mahaganapathi Temple.
The place is very beautiful and we have to walk down about 25 steps, behind the temple to reach the pond. The water is not very clean but height through whch water falling is very pleasant. One can spend about half an hour enjoying, being under the falls.
There are lot of stones in the pond.
There also a small park, and a beautiful view of sunset and the river joining the sea from the top of the hills.
Apsara konda(Apsarakonda) is a small village near Honnavar, town in Uttara Kannada district. 8 kms from Honnavar are the "Apsara Konda Falls" (Pond of the Celestial Nymphs) set in a picturesque setting and a fine beach that offers glorious sunsets.
Legend says that the Apsaras (Heavenly fairies) used to come here to bathe and relax. The place truly exudes heavenly beauty. There is Devi temple and a branch of Ramachandra mutt. There are several big caves on the hillock called ‘Pandavas caves’.With a view of the river, the sea, lthe islands, l;the lush green fields and coconut groves, the Apsarkonda hillock verily offers a feast to the eyes that see.
It was quite a nice attraction near Honnavar, Uttara Kannada Dist.
