Sanskriti - 5 Bedroom Pet-Friendly Keralite Haven near Kashid Beach near Alibaug | Exclusive Villa, Kashid

Sanskriti - Kashid, Maharashtra

Our speciality

At SaffronStays Sanskriti, distinct architectural patterns, authentic Tanjore paintings and innumerable heirloom antiques bring the essence of Kerala into the lap of Kashid.

Detailed Description

Welcome to Sanskriti, a quintessential Kerala home in the heart of Kashid where each step you take delivers an aura of heritage and culture...
From the stunted traditional entrance, where one must bow down to the Almighty to enter, the skylight roof window to innumerable antiques dotting the home, every piece placed in the home has a story to tell and a purpose to serve.

The heirloom items on display include an authentic desk and various farming and cooking appliances and 4 original Tanjore paintings, each depicting a unique story:
1. Kamadhenu: Kamadhenu is worshipped as the divine wish-fulfilling cow goddess, according to Hindu mythology. She is considered as the mother of all cows, as also of the eleven Rudras. This sacred, miraculous cow provides her owner anything at all that he or she ever desires. The body of this sacred cow is etched with drawings for various Gods that are held in high regard.
2. Vishnukatha: The various forms or 'avatars' of Vishnu depicted in one frame.
3. Ramapataabhishekam: The victorious return of Lord Ram to his kingdom of Ayodhya after 14 years in exile, and beating Raavan in battle.
4. Dakshinamurti: Dakshinamurti literally means 'one who is facing south' in Sanskrit. South is the direction of Death, hence change. In every Siva temple the stone image of Dakshinamurthy is installed, facing south, on the southern circumlocutory path around the sanctum sanctorum. Perhaps, of all Hindu Gods, he is the only one sitting facing south. This aspect of Shiva is his personification as the supreme or the ultimate awareness, understanding and knowledge. This form represents Shiva as a teacher of yoga, music, and wisdom, and giving exposition on the shastras. He is worshipped as the god of wisdom, complete and rewarding meditation. As per scriptures, if a person doesn't have a Guru, then they can consider and worship Lord Dakshinamurthy as their Guru.

A small, yet elaborate temple resides upon the lawn where various idols of Indian deities rest. A traditional multi-storeyed Kerala lamp lights the way to the temple. An attached meditation and art room is the perfect spot for an early morning meditation session.

To unwind, head over to the Table-Tennis table, play a game of Carrom or get your hands on a book or two from the library. For those wanting to stray out, the pristine Kashid beach is 5 minutes away from the 5-bedroom duplex home and beach towels and umbrellas are available for guests.

Kerala is called God's own country, and now, you can call Sanskriti your own home.
