Mahadev temple, Goa: Journey of a discovery

Mahadev temple in Goa is on 13th century origins and the soil around the temple is coppery pink, hence the name of the temple - Mahadev temple, Tambdisurla (Tambdi in Goan is red colour).

Built during the Kadamba dynasty in the 13th century, the entrance faces the east, so that the morning rays of the sun fall directly on the deity. It consists of a garbhagriha, an antarala and a pillared mandapa in the centre for Nandi, all built of basalt. The balustrades to the entrance of the mandapa were built in the Kakshasana arrangement.
