I am Creating a simple layout block and template, but it is giving error

Exception #0 (Magento\Framework\Exception\ValidatorException): Invalid template file: 'Test_Module::stock_left.phtml' in module: 'Test_Module' block's name: 'productleft'

layout catalog_product_view.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page layout = "1column" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
        <referenceContainer name="product.info.main">
            <block class="Test\Module\Block\StockLeft" name="productleft" template="Test_Module::stock_left.phtml"/>

Block StockLeft.php


namespace Test\Module\Block;

use Magento\Framework\view\Element\Template;

class StockLeft extends Template{


Template : stock_left.phtml

/**@var \Test\Module\Block\stockleft $blocks */


<h1>hello world</h1>

Thanks in advance.

You need to create your template file inside templates directory not template like

in Module :


or in Theme :


Create your template file here in your module
