The Laxmi Narasimha temple was initially located in the Sankhavali and was later on moved in with the other deities like those of Sri Vijayadurga and Sri Shantadurga to its current place of the Sylvan surroundings. The temple is very old and was built in the 18th century and as the name suggests the temple is dedicated to the Hindu God, Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi. The temple still retains its old charm quite unlike the other Hindu temples in Goa. The architecture of the temple is very old and one feels as if you have gone back to the Vedic times as the roof of the temple still glitters like gold, the carvings are very intricate and still there are wooden bars which take you back to the 18th century. The Mahajans of the temple belong only to the Shankpinga Kutsa Gotra. One can see a palakhi of Sri Laxmi Narasimha, which is taken out on every Shukla Chaturdashi. The festivals of Navratri and Ramanavami are celebrated with a lot of pomp and show and the annual Yatra or procession is taken out on Magha Masa. One of the very interesting feature of the temple is the presence of a fresh water spring fills the temple tank.
