Wash your feet at the pond of Shantadurga Temple, a red-colored spectacle with yellow borders, featuring an impressive idol of the goddess Shree Durga flanked by Vishnu and Shiva. Originally built in 1550 out of mud and palm leaves, the present laterite and granite temple structure, a fusion Indo-Portuguese style, was added between 1713 and 1738. The clean and well-managed Hindu temple features a lavish silver palanquin protected by one of the most revered patron deities of the Brahmin community. Bike or drive to the site, some 33 km (20 mi) away from Panaji. Photographs inside the temple are not allowed.

  • Best spot. Nice and calm! Pray and feel the positive energy within you. People who wear trouser and jeans are not allowed inside the temple, however you'll be given an over Towel to wear above your trousers before getting in. Do not litter.
  • This temple is very amazing and calm place. Despite of any season temple is always cool. You must visit it in festive season. It is very well decorated and full of enthusiasm in festive seasons. It is inside goa and quiet far from beaches. But there are plenty of cars agents available outside the temple on rent.
