Shree Devkikrishna Ravalnath Saunsthan
Shree Devkikrishna Ravalnath Saunsthan is one of the earliest temple set up by the Saraswat community in Goa brought to by the legendary Lord Parshuram. The exact period of establishment is difficult to assess since most history of the temple is obscure and is confined to songs and tales which have been preserved by a small section of devotees and which is fast dying out.The story of Devki and Krishna can be traced to the Mahabharata, a special reference to Gomanchal Parvat where it is reported that a battle was fought between Krishna and Balaram on one side and Jarasandha and his supporters on the other Infact. Jarasand is reported to be so powerful that Krishna decided to take refuge in Gomanchal Parvat, Jarasand is reported to have chased him all the way from the north. Devki, the real mother of Krishna became restless and anxious to see Krishna at any cost. She travelled all the way south to Gomanchal Parvat where she came face to face with Krishna. Devki could not believe the sight of Krishna, she thought some evil forces were fooling her and Krishna’s life was in danger. When Krishna inquired why she was so indifferent when he was her Devkinandan, she replied how can you be my son is Balakrishna.
