Devotees from across borders visit


The five day Zatrotsav of Shree Shantadurga Kunkallikarin at Fatorpa was celebrated with great pomp and religious fervour.
Thousands of devotees from all walks of life irrespective of religious and caste affiliations poured in at the Temple complex last night as the festivities culminated in the Maharatta procession of the deity in the wee hours of Monday.
The entire Temple complex wore a festive look with devotees from Goa and across the borders visiting Fatorpa to seek blessings of the deity.
Secretary of Shree Shantadurga Saunstha Virendra Dessai thanked the various authorities for their assistance in making the festival a grand success.
“The five day festivities passed off peacefully without any untoward incident. All the government agencies, including power, fire services, etc., provided all help and assistance to the Committee for the smooth conduct of the festivities,” he said.
