Shri Mahalasa Narayani Prasanna, Verna

4.6
#53 of 94 in Historic Sites in Goa
Dedicated to the female avatar of Lord Vishnu, Shri Mahalasa Narayani Prasanna marks the spot where, according to legend, the beloved goddess and the protector of Konkani people first appeared in Goa. The temple occupies the site of an earlier shrine destroyed by the Portuguese in 1567. The clean and spacious corridors and halls of the temple provide a peaceful setting for meditation and reflection. The crowds are rare, even during celebrations, since most of the local believers prefer to go to the old temple in Mardol.

  • Beautiful Temple situated on a hill plateau in Verna. It is a new building and some parts of the temple are still under construction. The staff at the Temple are also very helpful. It is a Devi Temple so more suitable for Marriages, as per some believers. The temple inside has beautiful structures, paintings and designs but photography is prohibited. They have daily Pooja at 9.30am.
  • Under construction temple. Beautifully built. Especially loved the beautiful black marble flooring. Calm and quiet place.
