About Shri Manguesh Temple

This Shiva Temple is one of the most visited temples of Goa and is also among its largest and wealthiest temples. It is distinguished by its elegant and exquisite architecture and its beautiful white hue. It also has a towering seven-storey Deepstambha (lamp tower) - a distinct feature of Goa temples that adds to its beauty. A water tank and image of Nandi Bull are other prominent features of this holy temple. It has a spacious hall called the ‘Sabha Griha’ which can accommodate over 500 people. The Mangueshi Temple is believed to be about 450 years old, though it has been rebuilt and renovated several times down the years. It lies at a distance of about 21 km from Panaji, in the Ponda taluka. Situated on a hillock and surrounded by greenery it has a scenic setting.

Pro Tip: Foreigners are generally not allowed within the temple premises.
