About Shanta Durga Temple In Goa

Shantadurga temple in Goa was located at Cavelossim till 1564. With the Portugese invasion during 1564, the temple was destroyed and the deity was shifted to Kavlem. After it was shifted to Kavlem, a small mud shrine was built for the deity. The founding stone was laid by the then Maratha ruler, Shahu Raje of Satara in the year 1730. In 1738, the construction of the temple was completed. The temple attracts a lot of devotees from all over the country, especially the devotees of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. 

The Shantadurga temple in Goa is a more than 450 years old temple dedicated to Goddess Durga. Legend has it that Goddess Durga acted as a mediator for stopping a fight between Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu, at this very spot. This incarnation of the Goddess Durga has been named so, because “Shanta” refers to peace, and she made peace between the two Gods and saved the world from being destroyed with the anger of the two. The Shantadurga temple Goa houses an idol of the goddess, flanked by idols of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu on both sides. The idol of the goddess is also shown holding two snakes, both of which represent Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.

The original Shri Shantadurga temple in Goa was destroyed by the Portuguese in the year 1530, in Koloshi and so the new idol was brought to Ponda. The new Shri Shantadurga temple is located on the outskirts of the Kavalem Village in Goa, and was established in the 16th century as a small mud shrine. In the year 1730, it was converted into a beautiful temple, and it was renovated in the year 1966. The new Shantadurga temple in Goa also holds guesthouses for pilgrims and devotees for spending a few nights in, as well as a fire-pit for carrying out ceremonies. The Shantadurga temple contact number can be reached for making enquiries about donations and booking of the guesthouse.

History Of Shantadurga Temple In Goa

Shantadurga Temple in Goa is dedicated to Devi Shantadurga, a goddess who mediates between 

Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. In colloquial terms, Shantadurga is also known as 'Santeri'. According to mythological texts, it is believed that a fierce battle was fought between Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu which worried the supreme Lord Brahma. He prayed and requested Shiva’s wife, Goddess Parvati to intervene between Shiva and Vishnu, and the same was done by the Goddess in the form of Shantadurga where she held Vishnu on her right hand and Shiva on left to end the fight.

    Find below my feedback for my trip to GOA from CHD 1. Rooms alloted were good and clean but a little bit on expensive side . Should have been charged less for same . 2. Taxi transfers were good with prompt response . Even sudden change in plan was accepted and planned accordingly transfer early morning . One thing to note ------ taxi driver from goa airport to flora residency made us paid airport entry charge of INR 50 at airport exit . 3. Good response from Gaurav and you whenever made contact with you guys . 4. Breakfast served was good in both hotels . My overall rating for trip is 4 out of 5.

    Lokendra's 6 days trip to Goa

    Whatever Itinerary committed with you may or may not be fulfilled. Commitments on Paper will stay in paper only. We have booked a trip to Goa and had faced multiple issues with the vendor. listing below: 1. Committed for Hi Team during the first three days at Hollywood Resort , but was denied by Hotel and was not further addressed by the Vendor as well. We have called the vendor for the same but sadly they just said "it was Hotels decision to stop the same" , but was it written on the Itinerary ? it was committed but not fulfilled. 2. Commitment of First night surprise Cake - Missed . Have to follow up even on second day for the same. Sad. 3. Commitment of Complementary Dinner on Day 4: Missed. Have to follow up even for this and was server at 10 PM. We expected a smooth and error free trip, but it was not that ways. Hollywood Resort : Over Rated and over charged.
