NARVEN-BICHOLIM - SRI SAPTAKOTEESWARA TEMPLE

The Kadamba kings were staunch Saivates and patronised the arts to a commendable degree that deserves instant emulation more than appreciation. Their gigantic temples adorned with superb sculpture and architectural excellences, though built some seven centuries back, are still beckoning the attention of the theists and tourists. Despite their external grandeur arid magnificence tasted the vagaries of time, their spiritual effulgence is still illumining the paths of the earnest seekers. The Siva temples built at Tambdisurla and NARVEN-BICHOLIM are testifying to the rulers' devotional zeal and their care for public zeal.

The famous Saptakoteswara temple is a standing specimen of medieval architectural style and mirrors the rulers' refinement and artists, superior craftsmanship. It is elegantly beautified with sculptural adornments. It is a big temple with imposing tower, vast courtyards and several mini--shrines for all the premier Saivate gods. The archamurti - Sivalinga is called Dharalinga. Its majesty and glistening polish raises the hands and fills the souls with bliss. It was the favoured deity of the kings.

It lies 37 km off Panaji, the Capital of Goa, and accessible for wheelers.
