Shri Mahadeva Temple, Tambdi Surla
 

Also known as Tambdi Surla Temple, this ancient Shri Mahadeva temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is situated at Tambdi Surla in Sanguem taluka, around 65 kms from Panaji and 12 Kms from Molem. This small 13th century temple built in basalt rock is in the midst of a forested area which is quite inaccessible and away from the main settlements. It  is the only surviving example of the Kadamba-Yadava architecture. The temple faces east so that the rays of the rising sun fall on the deity (ie. the Shiva linga) mounted on a pedestal inside the inner sanctum. The main mantap (hall) of the temple is composed of three entrances, a small 'antaralaya' and a 'garbagriha' (sanctum sanctorum). At the center of the mandap, there is a headless nandi. The interior and sides of the temple are embellished with intricate carvings and the exterior has some miniature examples of sculpture and relief carvings.
