The Hindu festival of Mahashivaratri will be celebrated on February 12 this year.
The 12th C temple of Mahadeva (another name for Shiva) set in a remote forest at Tambdi Surla is Goa‘s oldest surviving temple. It remains a place of active worship to this day.

As always a spectacular presentation. Such a fitting abode for the Mahadev.
Our ancestors certainly knew how to please heaven.
Thank you for another beautiful glance at our Goem.
You always get such lovely greens. Nice photo.

We love to go here.
Heard but never been.
You have got it in its best glory !
I love how you mention that the greenish tinge is the result of the wet temple reflecting the foliage. Wonderful picture and words.
The Enchanted Forest!
Thanks Rajan for that really nice photograph. I saw this temple as a little child. It is good to see that the greenery is still there.
