  BANDOD - MAHALAKSHMI SHRINE

This well-built and superbly adorned ancient temple is exercising an irresistible attraction over both class and mass of this remote village, all but due to the infinite compassion Mother is displaying in fulfilling the desires of the devotees. The Mother once played a dominating role as a powerful goddess Sakti and the temple was the abode and centre of Sakti cult. Many tantric adepts in Sakti cult used to assemble her for carrying on their activities Endowed richly by philanthropists and rulers, it is quite imposing in construction and vast in dimensions. The exquisite sculptural adornments with various images of Sakti, particularly set up in the gallery of the spacious Sabha mantap attract every visitor and wring their veneration. Out of the well known twenty four images of Bhagawathi in he different aspects, eighteen are beautifully arranged. The artistry of the maker is superb and the details portrayed are excellent. Daily worship is conducted with due veneration. Its antiquity and popularity as the erstwhile abode of Goddess Sakti and of the cult are its plus points for frequent visitation. Moreover, Mother Mahalakshmi is extremely favourable to her pious adores. Hence a steady stream of devotees throughout the year.

It lies off 4 km of Ponda, one of the famous towns in Goa territory, accessible by bus.
