The Mangeshi Temple used to be located in another town called Cortalem. However, in 1565, the deity was moved to the present location after the Portuguese started destroying all Hindu Temples in the region. It has a unique 7 storeyed structure for lighting the temples lamps. When the Portuguese forbade the people to follow Hindu customs in this area, this temple was transformed into a venue for conducting weddings.
