About Brahma Temple

The Brahma Temple is one of the few Brahma temples in the world, and the Brahma deity is said to have been built in the 5th century. Located 60 km from Panaji and at 7 km from the village of Valpoi, this temple is hence considered an ancient center of Hindu pilgrimage. The temple exteriors are a bright and colorful yellow and red, and it is located against the serene background of green hills. The Brahma statue in the temple is chiseled out of a single black basalt rock and depicts Brahma in the Trimurti form. The statue here is considered to be one of the finest specimens of Kadamba art. This unique statue shows Brahma with a beard. The village where the Brahma Temple is situated is called Brahma-Carambolim to distinguish it from Carambolim village, which is near Old Goa, the original home of the deity.

Historical Context: The Brahma-Carambolim deity installed in this temple is said to have originally come from its namesake village – Carambolim. This village is located adjacent to Old Goa. The sculpture was saved by devotees during the period of religious intolerance in the sixteenth century and was taken across the borders to the east, near the foothills of the Western Ghats, where it was re-installed here.
