  • One of the best monuments in Goa from the history point of view. The temple is carved from one huge stone as per what my school teacher taught me. Very fascinating. The temple gates close by 5:30 pm. We saw people jumping the fence and getting in the temple after 5:30pm. The temple lacks a decent rest room, so much space for improvement of this heritage tourist attraction. Various food stalls serve light snacks, lemonade & tea just outside the temple.
  • Good roads to approach the temple. Peaceful with no distractions. Amazing temple, small yet beautiful. Wonder there are some more in the forest
  • It is the best place in Goa. It is a very old temple built in hemadpanti style in the middle of Bhagwan Mahaveer Forest.

Tambdi Surla itself is in the midst of a forested area accessible via a 22 kms route from the main town of Valpoi in Sattari Taluka. The temple itself is built in Jain style in the twelfth century. There are some interesting details about the construction itself which has led to debates about the actual origins of the temple. The temple is built in a place which is quite inaccessible and away from the main settlements of the time. The size of the temple is quite small as compared to the size of the average Goan temple. And finally the top part of the temple has never been completed.
  • Yet another amazing place in Goa. It's a Mahadev shrine which was made by the Pandavas. The rock cut and structures are so well done that it's unimaginable. A water stream flows down where you may splash some water and have fun. Trekking is possible to the nearest village. Just find trails on Google maps.
