Shri Nagesh Temple at Ponda,Goa
Shri Nagesh temple is a "Swayambhu" Shrine of Lord Shankar and is known for its miraculous myths. The consecration of its 
Shivlinga is of ancient times, the history of which is not available at present, except a reference in the folk songs. The environs-known as Nagzar- had in the past a grove of ;Shami; trees. A legend has it that a cow-boy noticed that cow from his herd used to visit the place regularly and showed its milk. This led to the discovery of the Shivlinga. The surroundings are highly pleasing and are enriched by ranges of hills on the three sides. The river Aghanashini 
flows on its fourth side. A nalla flows all the year round through the heart of the village and on its either side one would find the oscillating dark green fields. There are a 
number of springs found in several places in the surrounding hills with areca plantations. Bhagwan Samba Shri Nagesh Maharudra has his abode in this delightful and fascinating spot.
