Mahalaxmi Temple, Panaji.
This is located in the city of Panaji, off
Dada Vaidhya road. It
was the first Hindu temple allowed to be built by the Portuguese in Goa
after 300 years.
It was approved by the Portuguese authorities in 1818 after a long
delay and built subsequently. It was most recently renovated in
1983. The deity of the temple originally came from the village of Taleigao and
was moved to Bicholim in the 16th century to escape Portuguese destruction. For
a short while during the approval process for building the temple the deity
remained at the house of Mhamai Kamat, near the Idalcao's palace.
