Mahadeva Temple, Tambdi Surla
Do / Real local

A breathtaking 12th-century temple in the heart of Mollem National Park. It’s is beautifully wrought in stone, retaining intricate carvings of elephants, chains and lotuses that date back to the Kadamban period. It’s said to be the last of its kind standing in Goa, the rest having been destroyed.

Pro tip: The temple is often considered the starting point of the hike to Tambdi Surla waterfalls. You may encounter some crowds of locals here.
