Goa is known as the best tourist destinations in India. Apart from Sea and Sand, it has many historical places and Curdi village is one of them, which has historical significance from the time Salaulim Dam was built. In 1970’s when the Salaulim dam was built it submerged the villages of Kurdi and Kurpem in Sanguem Taluka. The village Curdi appears once a year.
Shree Someshwar Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is located in the village of Kurdi is the only structure that still remains intact even after the whole village was submerged. The temple stone Nandi along with other idols from Someshwar temple were moved to Valkini col. No. 2. This temple is called to be a very “Jaagruth Devasthan”. Close to the temple, Dolmen, Menhirs and other stone structures can be found.
Now ancient Shree Someshwar Temple and Curdi village is one of the best tourist spot in Goa, but being isolated many people are not aware of it. It is totally surrounded by water all the year. You can only visit Curdi village in the month of May. Therefore every year Curdi people celebrate utsav at Someshwar temple to recollect their memories and love of their ancestral place.
