Shri Mahadev Temple, Tambdi Surla

The Shri Mahadev Temple at Tambdu Surla was constructed in the 12th century as a dedication to Lord Shiva, by the Kadamba Yadava dynasty. It is the oldest temple in Goa, and contains intricate relief carvings on stone that occupy a very prominent archaeological position in Indian history. The deity is positioned so that it basks in the first rays of the rising sun. The Shri Mahadev Temple is managed by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), and should be on your list of attractions to visit if you have an affinity for ancient heritage.
