Shanta Durga Temple - Review
Shantadurga is the form the goddess Parvati took to mediate a violent quarrel between Vishnu and Shiva. This strikingly beautiful temple is dedicated to her. It was built in the reign of Maratha ruler Chattrapati Shahu of Satara in about 1738 A.D. Nestled into the foot of a lushly green hill, the temple's architecture fuses Indian and Portuguese styles. For example, it has shikaras on the roof but also roman windows of stained glass. The deity herself rests on a golden palanquin. Outside the temple is a lamp tower that looks like a cake. It is an utterly tranquil place.

Shanta Durga Temple, Panaji Reviews
One of the oldest and richest temples of Goa. The interior is amazing and made of good and silver. The idol of Devi Shantadurga is so beautiful. The temple is very spacious and has one of the best architecture of its time. The canteen food is one of the best I’ve had so far in Goa. Even though the food is prepared without onion and garlic, it tastes delicious and is very cheap. The office also sells sarees that were donated to the Devi at a very reasonable rate. The temple is one of the best places to visit in Goa for sure.
Easy access. Must seek blessings. Less options for food around the area, so plan accordingly. Great experience Thanks For Reading 📖
Clean surrounding.. management must be congratulated.. you can also buy small trinkets from shops that line up on both side of roads..
