This ancient temple of Lord Shiva is located in Narve village , Bicholim Taluka goa. Here Shivaji had come and hid in this temple and went thru a hidden cave. Lots of devotees come here to offer prayers. Nearby is Shri Laxminarayan Temple which is also about 600 years old built by a Gujarati in those days.

The temple is located in the Village of Narva, a scenic village and the route to the same via Divar Island. En route there are two ferry crossings at Old Goa to Divar and at Divar to Narve. This temple of Kadambas was rebuilt by Raja Shivaji and is maintained in Good condition.
