Shanta Durga Temple, Panjim

4.6
Wash your feet at the pond of Shanta Durga Temple, a red-colored spectacle with yellow borders, featuring an impressive idol of the goddess Shree Durga flanked by Vishnu and Shiva. Originally built in 1550 out of mud and palm leaves, the present laterite and granite temple structure, a fusion Indo-Portuguese style, was added between 1713 and 1738. The clean and well-managed Hindu temple features a lavish silver palanquin protected by one of the most revered patron deities of the Brahmin community. Bike or drive to the site, some 33 km (20 mi) away from Panaji. Photographs inside the temple are not allowed.

  • Very beautiful temple, which is visited mostly by locals. Tourists are tolerated, but they should abide by the rules: shoes before entering undress, take no pictures inside, keep knees and shoulders covered and do not disturb the faithful. On the way to the temple, you can buy flower donations for a few rupees, to donate them to the temple.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
