As the name suggests the Shantadurga Temple is dedicated to Shantadurga, the Goddess of peace. Situated 33 kilometres from Panaji, the temple has an idol of Goddess Durga with Shree Vishnu and Shree Shiva on either side. It is symbolic to the mediation that Goddess Durga did when there was a fierce fight between both the gods. The temple is a fusion of Indo-Portugese architecture. There are many guest houses built on the sides of the temple. The main attraction is the golden ‘palki’ on which the deity is carried on festive occasions.
