Mangeshi Temple, Goa

4.4
Take in the ornate architecture and spiritual atmosphere of Mangeshi Temple, one of the most important temples in the area. Admire gold domed roofs and an ornate, seven-story "deepstambha," (lamp tower) standing at the entrance to the grounds, a feature typical of temples in this region. Enjoy something to eat in the onsite canteen, or grab a snack from one of the vendors outside. Be sure to dress accordingly: no short dresses, but you can rent a wraparound upon entry.

  • Mangeshi temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and is situated in Mangeshi Village , Goa. The moment you enter the temple a great sense of peace surrounds you. The architecture of the temple is wonderful and it is constructed beautifully. Generally all the temples in Goa are built in huge area and unlike other temples you get the chance to explore and walk peacefully. Photography inside the Temple is strictly prohibited. The temple has all the required facilities starting from eateries and the entire stretch outside the temple is covered with lots of shopping stops. It is indeed nice view of a lake in front of the temple. The place is Quite and serene and has well-managed entry system.
  • Mangeshi temple is a little away from the usual tourist destinations. But this is around 20min drive from the Old Goa where the main churches are located and hence worth a visit, if you have time. We were asked to park a little away from temple( around 5min walk), though vehicles can go till the temple and few cars were parked there too. The road leading to temple has shops on both sides. About the temple: Very nice, peaceful atmosphere and beautiful. Functioning Siva temple. Please dress modestly. Clean, Beautiful, Well - maintained. The Temple is historic and wonderful. A visit to Goa, without visiting Ponda and all the old temples here would be incomplete. The peace and spiritual atmosphere inside makes one feel like sitting here for hours on end. We went to the temple as it was on way, the temple is really beautiful and there is good place to sit, relax and do your prayers. A temple made more famous by the Mangeshkar family. Temple is dedicated to Shiva. On one side there are commercial shops and vendors.
  • Goa is not just famous for beaches and churches but also for temples. There are good number of temples here. One of the famous temples is Mangeshi temple. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It has different architecture compared to any other temples in India. There is a pillar just at the entrance which looks so good.
  • Mangeshi temple is one of the beautiful Hindu temple in goa. Very cleanly maintained and lot parking space available. Very peaceful place. Shopping also is there near by temple.
  • Peaceful place.. u have to be fully covered while going here ... U can not wear shorts and go... Its also very clean.. parking is available and you can also get few shops for local things to buy
