‪Definitely worth a visit when in Goa‬
נוב׳ 2020
‪I was visiting this temple for the third time in my life. The first was in 1971 , second in 2001 and third this month. Not only the temple but the entire area around it has changed drastically. The current structure looks awesome. The blue, golden and white combination of colours give it a look of grandeur . We went to visit it in the afternoon which is a time one should avoid as the floor is very hot. Due to the pandemic all precautions were being taken. There were no vendors selling flowers or puja material, social distancing was being maintained well. Also the darshan could happen only from a far of distance so no one really enters the hall fo the temple. The surroundings were kept very clean.

My recommendation would be to visit this when in Goa. It is a very beautifully built and well maintained.

‪Very beautiful and serene temple.
The timings currently are 3pm to 6pm all days due to COVID.

The temple was previously situated in Cortalim. Upon Portuguese invasion in Goa, many Hindu temples were destroyed. The Portuguese forced people to change their religion to Christianity. Hence the group of Saraswats belonging to Vatsa Gotra shifted the Linga to the village Mangueshi, where it is currently housed now.
The temple was rebuilt twice during the Maratha regime and renovated last in 1973.
A golden kalash was fitted atop the tall dome of the temple during this last renovation.

There is a another fascinating legend attached to the name of the Lord Manguesh, who is an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The ancient legend states that Lord Shiva once lost everything he had in a game of dice with his wife Parvati. He decided to go into self-imposed exile and arrived in Goa.
Parvati, unable to stay without Lord Shiva for long, came looking for him in the jungles of Goa. Lord Shiva decided to play a prank to frighten her and disguised himself as a tiger which attacked her. Parvati cried out for help in terror, ‘Trahi Mam Girisha’ (O Lord of Mountains Save Me).
Lord Shiva immediately turned himself back into his normal form and the two were united. But the cry for help and the words ‘mam girisha’ became associated with Lord Shiva. In the course of time the words abbreviated to Manguirisha or Manguesh by which name he is known today.
A linga which was left to mark the place where the legend occurred was discovered by a local shepherd and eventually a temple was built to house Lord Manguesh.

Me being a Saraswat, this is one of my kuldevatas(family deities). I always make it a point to visit when I come to Goa.

The peace you feel when you visit this temple is incomparable.
Definitely come here at least once.

Only suggestion to the authorities is - please make sure all people are wearing masks and following social distancing. Otherwise deny entry.
Some people did not follow the precautions and were very unruly; something I observed during my last visit on 16 Nov 2020.
Sanitizer was provided at entrance but no one seemed to be using it consciously.
When questioned, why they are allowing people without masks, their answer is "We cant do anything except leave our safety to God". Not done at all, when at other places heavy fines are taken when masks are not worn and social distancing not followed.

Also, certain visitors came in shorts, skirts, sleeveless dresses up to knee length. Modest dressing should be a must-people should maintain the sanctity of this temple, not treat this like a party place just because you are in Goa.‬

‪Lord Mangueshi, an incarnation of Lord Shiva‬
ינו׳ 2020
‪We were told that Lord Mangueshi is recognized as Lord Shiva only in the regions of Goa. Shri Mangueshi Temple is situated in the Ponda Taluka at a place called Priol. The distance of the Mangueshi temple from Panaji is 22 km.

Mythology says that Lord Shiva had once visited the land distraught after losing heavily to his wife Parvati at a game of dice. As Goddess Parvati came looking for him, he tried to prank her by shape shifting into a tiger and frightening her. Seeing the predator in front of her, Parvati shrieked and prayed uttering the following words Trahi Mam Grisha, roughly translated this means “O Lord of the Mountains, save me”. Upon hearing her plea Shiva reverted to his usual form and returned to Kailash with her.

Shiva came to be known as Lord Manguesh due Parvati’s words Mam Grisha that remains associated with the land and the tale. The original location where the temple was built is presently the location of village Cortalim, located at the south of the Zuari River. It was during the Portuguese invasion that the deity was shifted Priol, where it remains till this day.‬
