TAMBDI SURLA - MAHADEV TEMPLE

During the reign of Kadambas, in the thirteenth century, the Goan territory thrived in all directions due to benign administration of the enlightened rulers. Several temples were built for all the gods of Hindu Pantheon, like Nageswar, Vithal, Santadurga, Mahalaxmi, Ramnath etc. Unfortunately most of them were razed to ground by the aliens, who are aliens to culture and refinement. After more than 400 years of darkness, some of the surviving shrines opened their doors to carry on activities for public benefit.

On account of foreign impact, many temples seem to be putting on a vaneer of western civilization, but deep examination shows, that the core of Hindu culture is remaining untainted. It is immaculate and dynamic.

In the temples renovated or built afresh, as in the past, agamic Pooja, with all rituals, is being conducted demonstrating that the much adored Hinduism has not lost its vitality, nor has bartered away its glory during the foreign rule. The Mahadev temple at Tambdi Surla where ancient traditions are followed serves as an example to this. It was built first about 700 years back with all the necessary parts, like garbhagriha, mukhamandapa, minishrines etc. Built in the yadava style of architecture, it looks extremely grand. It is visit-worthy temple.

It lies 65 km off Panaji, in the Sangham taluq at the feet of the Western ghats. It is accessible by four wheelers.
