Sri Ramnath Temple, Goa

Located a few kilometers from Panaji, the capital of Goa, India, is the Sri Ramnath Temple dedicated to Ramnath or Lord Shiva. It is believed that after assassinating the demon king Ravana of Lanka, Lord Rama installed a shivling (idol of Shiva) here as a compensation for his act.

From then onwards the shrine is known as Rameshwar or Ramnath. Initially the temple was located at a settlement called Loutolim. Later it was moved to the current location during the Portuguese rule. One can see the interesting architecture of the temple in this video.
