Shri Shantadurga Temple

Shri Shantadurga Temple, Kavlem

More than 450 years old, the Shantadurga temple is situated in the foothills of Kavalem village. Goddess Durga was said to act as a mediator between Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu’s fierce war, and was given the name Shanta, meaning ’peace’. The temple was originally situated in Keloshi, but relocated during Portuguese rule. The present temple structure was built between 1713 and 1738 under the reign of Shahu Maharaj.
