Ancient temple of GSBs
lis 2020 • Dla rodziny
The minute I stepped inside the temple, I felt the positive and powerful vibes. Much needed in today's world.
The temple is open from morning 8am to evening 6pm even during COVID, which is good as it prevents over-crowding of visitors.
The main entrance is closed. You have to go just one lane ahead where the lane to the back entrance starts.
Entry was not allowed without masks and the person at the entrance was noting down temperature checks of the visitors along with their address and phone number. Sanitizers were provided.
Social distancing was followed.
Important is modest dressing is a must. No sleeveless, half skirts, shorts or short clothes allowed. Hands and legs and legs should be fully covered.

The original temple was first built in Quelossim. But after Portuguese invasion, the temple was destroyed and later built by the Maratha Empire in Kavlem, where it is now.
The temple is dedicated to Shree Shantadurga, the goddess of peace. Durga, who is often portrayed exuding fury and aggression, appears in a gentler form in Goa. Shanta, in Sanskrit, means peace. According to Hindu mythology, the goddess got her name after she settled a quarrel between Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. According to legend, the quarrel turned bitter and became so fierce that it threatened to destroy the entire universe. Fearing annihilation, Lord Brahma pleaded Goddess Parvati to interfere. Taking the form of Shantadurga, the goddess took Shiva by her left hand and Vishnu by her right and pacified the duo.
Thus, the idol of the goddess is flanked by the statues of Shiva and Vishnu. The goddess holds serpents in each hand, representing Shiva and Vishnu.

This is the famous kuldevi of the Goud Saraswat Brahmin community.
Very peaceful and positive place. Definitely visit at least once.

If you are hindu devotional follower, then this is one of best to place to visit in Goa. But the accessibility is little far from city. It's not a must seen place or the architecture of this temple is normal.

Well known Temple of Goa
cze 2019
There are many temples in Goa and in Konkan belt, dedicated to Shri Shantadurga Devi. This temple is located in the village of Kavale and is popularly known among the locals as Kavale Shantadurga Temple. The temple is highly revered by locals and is also visited in large numbers by the tourists.
The roads leading to the temple are narrow and may become crowded on a busy day. The temple complex is spacious and there is a small pond along the road, near the temple complex. The temple view is very beautiful, with lush greenery all around.

Nice, clean and well maintained temple!
gru 2019 • Dla rodziny
Very nice, well maintained temple - around 45 mins from South Goa - Cavelossim!
Queue management needs to be improved (though there wasn't any long queue). Completed the darshan in 10 mins.
Road access is good. There is a small food canteen inside the temple which serves food without onion and garlic which perfectly suited our preferences.
Worth a visit!

One More GSB (Goud Saraswat Brahmin's) Landmark Temple In Goa.
lis 2019
A) Location:

This is one more most famous temple in Goa & is located in Kavalem village of Ponda taluka at 31 km from Panaji.

B) Temple Impressed Me From Following Aspects:

1. Very unique distinctive type of architecture.

2. Neat & clean temple premises

3. Free parking on the side of main road in front of temple

4. Canteen facility providing simple veg food.

5. Agrashala: Very affordable accommodation facility for pilgrims & devotees from GSB community only.

6. Free footwear stand

7. There are food stalls, flowers garland stall, hotel on route from main road to temple.

8. Spacious temple surroundings

C) Shantidurga Temple:

Wikipedia, Shantidurga temple trust & other websites provides excellent religious & historical information on this temple. Please read it on google search by typing Shantidurga Temple Goa.

Temple is open from 6 am to 10 pm.

This temple houses the kuldaivat (family deity) of GSB community.

Temple belongs to Godess Parvati (who is named Shantidurga).

D) The Other Notable Things Are:

1. Multistory Deepstambha (Lamp Tower)

2. Chandelier inside the main hall of temple

3. A water tank, the gate of it was closed during our visit

4. Agrashala accommodation facility on left side, rear side & right side of temple

5. One is not allowed to take darshan from very near inside the temple

6. There are three more smaller temples of other dieties

E) Photos:

Photos inside main temple are totally prohibited.
Visitors are allowed to take photos outside temple.

I have attached photos with easy to understand tag & description system.
Have a look at the photos to get the feel of those things in the photo.

Mangeshi & Shantidurga temple do resemble each other in many aspects.

If you are in Goa on sightseeing tour then I will surely recommend one time visit to this temple.

One may visit this place if looking to visit a temple, though claimed to be built in Portuguese style but nothing great to view.
