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.

  • Typical Goan Hindu Temple... Peaceful surroundings... This place is same as it was 15 years back when I first visited ... I guess it has not changed for decades nor should it change in future..

  • Very beautiful temple and the most important thing is during the afternoon aarti the sunlight with the help of the mirror falls exactly on the idol
