Mahadev Temple Travel

With nature bestowing Goa with all its treasures, can the Lords be far behind with their presence? Goa is replete with numerous Hindu temples dedicated to various Gods and Goddesses. The Mahadev temple located along the shore of River Surla at Tambdi Surla in Sanguem was constructed in the early 13th Century. Built in Kadamba architecture using black basalt from the Deccan Plateau and transported across the Western Ghats.

The interiors are exquisitely carved with numerous incidents depicting the lifestyles and stories of Lords. The temple peak has Lords, Brahma facing South, and Lord Vishnu facing West and Lord Mahesh / Mahadev facing north. The most intriguing part is the Nandi with severed head standing at the entrance providing an evidence of how the foreign attackers ransacked religious places in India.
