Every year on Paush Shukla Paksha Chaturdasi or the fourteenth day during the waxing phase of the moon as per Hindu lunar calendar followed in Goa, a festival called Bodgeshwar Jatra takes place in Mapusa. Lord Bodgeshwar is considered as the guardian of Mapusa.
The popular belief is that the deity is a wish fulfilling deity and prayers never go unanswered.
A huge fair is held on the grounds outside the temple, and is attended by thousands every year. It’s all there, food, games, Ferris Wheel, Well of Death, a goat that can read minds, you name it! The fair goes on for about 10 days. JumpCut Goa made a trip to the Mapusa Mela 2020 and here’s how it went.
