With a motive to enrich the learning experience of the students, the Department of Journalism organized a field trip for the SYBA Journalism students. The trip, which was part of their ‘Art Appreciation’ paper, comprised of visits to the Aravlem Caves in Sanquelim and Mahadev Temple in Tambdi Surla (both situated in North Goa).
Arvalem Caves or the “Pandava Caves” are examples of the historical monuments present in Goa. The students witnessed the architectural style of the caves built in 5th-6th Century.
The Mahadev Temple at Tambdi Surla is a 12th-century Shaivite temple, built in the Hemadpanthi style from basalt, carried across the mountains from the Deccan Plateau and carved by craftsmen. It is considered to be the only specimen of Kadamba-Yadava architecture in basalt stone preserved and available in Goa.
Here’s a glimpse of their experience.
