Shri Ananta Temple
 

Shri Ananta Narasimha temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is one of the famous temples of Goa. The temple, situated in a small village of Savoi-Verem in Ponda taluka about 45 kms away Panaji, is surrounded on all sides by water and beautiful scenery. The idol of the deity is carved in black stone and Lord Vishnu is shown here in his Anantashayana (a sleeping position where the Lord rests on the multi-headed snake king Seshnaga, whose heads shelter the head of the Lord like an umbrella). Apart from the main deity, the sprawling temple complex consists of temples of other deities Shantadurga, Kamini, Narayan and Grampurush. A number of festivals are celebrated at the temple including Shibikotsav in which the palakhi (palanquin) of Lord Ananta is carried by devotees on their shoulders around the temple complex.
