Initially a mud-shrine, the Shanta Durg Temple had its stone structure in the 18th century. Later it was renovated in 1966. The temple is dedicated to the Goddess Shanta Durga, the goddess who mediated between Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. Shanta Durga Devi is revered as the “kuldevi” (family goddess) of many Konkani residents. Indo-Portuguese fusion of architecture is clearly evidentin the pyramidal structure of the temple. Stained and coloured glass panes are found in the main building.
