about shri damodar temple

Built to house the deity of Lord Ramnath, a form of Lord Shiva, following the Margao temple destruction by Portuguese in 1565, in place of which the Church of Holy Spirit was built, Shri Damodar Temple and the temple's deity are today worshipped fervently by both Hindus and Catholics alike. A modest, serene white and green structure the temple has Lord Ramnath and Mahesha, both incarnations of Lord Shiva, as well as Godess Chamundeshwari (form of Shakti) and Mahakali as the temple deities, together forming Panchista parivar, held in reverence and devotion by devotees that come from afar.

Additionally, you can also offer your prayers to Sri Mulvir, Shri Laxminarayan and Shri Nirakar housed in the Shri Damodar temple. What makes the temple particularly reverential is its location on the banks of river Kushwati, held in reverence in its own right. An ancient Hindu site, the river's waters are considered sacred and said to have medicinal properties. An ablution area has been built where you can take a dip in the waters of the river and get blessings.

Usually a serene and tranquil affair, the temple is lit with frenzy, activity and excitement during the Shigmo festival, held between the months of February and March. A spring festival native to Goa, the temple celebrates it by taking out the deities in a Palkhi (palaquin) around the main temple followed with Aarti (temple prayers). Since Holi is a part of this festival, you can expect colors flying around the temple courtyard in addition to folkloric and mythological performances and depictions, held over a span of a fortnight.

A hit with many an ardent devotee. Try not to miss the aarti in the afternoons and the sunday palkhi, if you plan to visit.
