  • Formerly in the Kolaba District, the Satamba (Virjoli) cemetery now is in the Raigad district. The site is between Ghosala and Virjoli (Satamba), Roha Taluka, Raigad District, State. A double cemetery, one part for the Satamker family and the other for the Ghosalker family. As all the members of these two families left their villages, the cemeteries are left unattended and in a few years nothing will remain of them. I would be grateful to those who could take pictures of the graves and send me a copy. Source: Ch. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
