The initial settlement of Margao grew from the site of the
ancient Damodar Temple. The original temple was demolished and the temple tank
was filled up to be replaced by the Holy Spirit church and church
grounds. The deity Damodar (a form of Lord Vishnu) was carried
across the Zuari Agranashini river to the Novas Conquistas in which the Sonde
rulers resided. While the western side of the Church developed
as a market place, the settlement grew on the eastern side, that is, the Borda
region, with the church at its core and extended outwards.
