Abode of Vishnu.
The historic temple of Anant in the village of Savoi-Verem, Goa, is ensconced in a luscious bed of green. A schist plaque of the reclining Vishnu – Anantshayana – dating back to the 11th Century during the Kadamba period is the central object of worship in the garbhagriha. The temple is surrounded by groves – known in Konkani as kuLagars – of areca-nut and coconut trees, once an essential feature of Goan villages.

Apropos of the photo below – on this particular visit in 2007, I arrived during ‘gandha-puja,’ hence the colourful anointments.
Mesmerizing topped with Ustadji’s Dhrupad. Returning to your blog nearly after two years. Lot to see and explore.
Visited this beautiful temple last year during monsoons – part of our ‘Parjanya Payana’
