I come here every year. Amazing vibes. Clean surroundings, pujari's are knowledgeable. I had gone to Abhayam Ayurved from here, great facility for authentic Ayurvedic treatments. Ponda is quite and non commercial place.

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.

The temple is beautiful from out and inside. All rituals are performed in traditional way and devotees get feel of goddess there. Dress code needs to be observed. Food and parking arrangement is there.

Situated 33 kms from Panajim, Shree Shantadurga temple has an impressive idol of Goddess Shree Durga who mediated between Shree Vishnu and Shree Shiva. The temple has strict dress code. Avoid shorts, skirts, tank tops and other short dresses while visiting Shanta durga Temple.
