Naguesh Temple - Review
The Naugesh Temple about 25 kilometers from Panaji is the most important religious place for Hindus in Goa. The temple is dedicated to the Goan God “Naugesh” or “Naugeshi”. There is a beautiful stone tablet at the entrance which dates back to 1413 AD.
Another fascinating thing about the temple is The sanctuary which has an old tali (water store) flanked by palms. Inside it there is a reservoir in which the reflection of the Naugesh idol directly falls making it a mesmerizing sight for the devotee. Worth noting at the sanctuary are the colorful pictures of divine beings and goddesses around the base of the deepstambha (light tower) that are regarded with utmost devotion.

Naguesh Temple, Panaji Reviews
Peaceful temple and the premise is very appealing. The architecture is marvellous and the campus is clean. Also the temple has paintings or Ramayana on the walls which look fabulous. The temple has a lake next to it and has lots of fishes in it. The canteen food is delicious and one of the best charities I’ve ever seen. Devotees from all over the world visit this temple and find peace. Definitely a must visit in Goa. Although it’s a bit secluded and finding a taxi is difficult. Do try to hire a car or tell the taxi to wait until you visit the temple. Overall very peaceful and soothing experience.
Nearest temple to Mahalaxmi Temple. Well maintained rooms. But missing old canteener and his food.
Good ambience, good food and energising place. Try the street side vendors for chemical free organic food.
Really nice place. Although one warning to all parents kindly attend your children's all time as there is lake infront of temple and there were few unfortunate incidents which happened at the lake. Otherwise perfect place to explore beauty of Goa.
Had nice darshan , also had food in the form of Prasad very delicious
