Sri Datta Mandir
With the growing atmosphere of tolerance, or indifference by the Portugese authorities many Hindu shrines and temples appeared in the late 19th century over the length and breadth of the New Conquests.The Temple Complex – photo by Mohan Pai
Sri Datta Mandir at Sancolem, about 6 kms from Bicholim was one of the temples built during this period (1882). It follows the more conventional design and is built on fairly traditional lines but with a dome.
