Legend

Ramanath (or Ramnathi) is an epitome of mutual respect between the Holy Trinity. Ramanath may mean the master of Lord Rama, i.e. Shiva or Rama himself as the master of Lord Shiva. Legends say that the first installation and worshiping of Rameshwara (Lord Shiva) was by Lord Rama Himself, as an act of penance for slaying Ravana - a brahmin. It is also said that when Lord Shiva drank the poison that came out of the ocean, during Samudra Manthan (churning of the ocean), His throat began burning and it was when He started chanting Rama Nama, the burning sensation was soothed. Hence, Shree Ramnath Prasanna is a symbol of unity of HariHara (Lord Rama & Lord Shiva). The temple is home to 7 main deities and they all have some astounding legends associated with them.

Architecture

Unlike most temples in Goa, the Sabhamandap (Grand Hall) of the Shree Ramnath Prasanna has no pillars.  There is a five-storied Deepstambha (Lamp Tower) in the courtyard with images of Hindu saints carved on its base. The door to the Inner Sanctum has some exceptionally beautiful scenes carved in silver. One of the carvings depicts devotees worshiping a linga and the other one is that of Lord Vishnu with His consort Lakshmi sitting on His 'aasana' of 'Sheshnaag'. The present temple consists of Sabha Mandap, Nagarkhana, Garbhgriha, Yandya Mandap, Deepstambha, Naivedya Ghar, and many other architectural wonders. There are few temples that encapsulate such a wide variety of imagery in one campus.
