Situated at Fatorpa in Quepem Taluka, the temple dedicated to Shantadurga was originally from Cuncolim and hence, the deity is known as “Shantadurga Kukalienkarin”. The idol is made of five metals and is one foot in height. The deity is known as “Jagrit Devta” and holds in its arms a shield and a Trishula.

Shantadurga is worshipped by Hindus and Christians alike, as the devotees believe that she asks in their dreams anything she likes and they offer the things demanded by Goddess with great veneration. Hence, the temple has much religious sanctity. The principal festival is “Jatrotsava”, which attracts thousands of pilgrims from all over Goa.

The annual  Jatrotsava  begins from  24th December , and will be concluded  on 29th December  2006.
