The Devaki Krishna temple is located in the village of Marcel.
The original site of the temple was on the island of Chorao in the Mandovi river. The insurgence of the Portuguese forced the devotees to remove the idol from there between 1530 and 1540. The deities were then relocated to Mayem. They only came to be in Marcel between 1540 and 1567. The present structure was not built until 1842, with the deities previously residing in a small and modest shrine.
The festival of Chikal Kalo is celebrated in a major way at the grounds near the temple complex and is a fun monsoon festival to experience.The festival is celebrated on the 11th day of the Hindu lunar month of Aashadh (June-July) and is actually nothing but a collection of various games that Lord Krishna is supposed to have played in his childhood.
This is the only temple in all of India that represents Lord Krishna with his mother Devaki.
