Varanga is a small village located in Karkala which belongs to the Udupi district. This place is a pilgrimage destination for the Jain community and is famous for its heritage Basadis. Basadi is a Jain shrine or temple structure which is mostly seen in South India, especially Karnataka. Varanga possesses not one but several beautiful Basadis long built back 850 years ago.
Team Yakshas made it to one of the most mesmerizingly beautiful Basadi known as ‘Kere Basadi’, as the name says it’s surrounded by ‘kere’ which means ‘lake’. Hence, this place is also known as Jalamandir, which means ‘Lake Temple’. It attracts not only tourists but also devotees of Lord Parshwanatha.
Varanga is truly surrounded by unbounded natural beauty, with a peaceful temple amidst a calm lake covered with floating lotus flowers and thriving aquatic species as well. Nature is definitely at its best at this place!
