Shri Damodar Temple

Shri Damodar Temple, GoaSri Damodar temple is positioned at Zambaulim, a distance 22 kms from Margao and 5 km. from Quepem, in Goa. This beautiful temple is well sited on the banks of the Kushawati River, another name of Panti. Lord Damodar was transferred in 1565 AD to escape the Portuguese investigation. Then the original temple was destroyed and the Church constructed on its site. The deity was originally in Margao Here Lord Damodar is the incarnation of Shiva and other affiliate deities of the place are Sri Ramnath, Sri Mahesha, Sri Chamundeshwari, and Sri Mahakali. Both Hindus and Christians attend Sri Damodar, in fact, Catholics gave huge donations to the temple.

As people think Goa to be a Christian state but actually the place has a mixture of Hinduism, Buddhism and Islamism. Goa is a perfect place for celebration of fairs and festivals.

The Shigmotsava (Shigmo) of Zambaulim holds exacting significance for the Hindu Saraswat Brahmins. The weeklong fair of Shigmotsava, overflowing with devotional and cultural programs of Goa and exchange of Gulals is the prime means of attractions of the temple. The annual Jatra is also organizing from Ashwin Purnima to Vadya Chaturthi at the vicinity of the Damodar Temple. Devotees from all across the world take their holy bath in the river Kushavati, which has great healing powers to cure the highly incurable diseases.
