Regardless of the Portuguese effect that shows in the culture of Goa for centuries, it fascinates the tourist world that Hinduism has thrived here well in the form of temples with a mention in history too. Taken from one place to another, the presiding gods were protected and worshipped, sometimes, personally by priests in their houses, until they were brought in their present temples in Goa.
Location & Surrounding – Some historical temples in Goa are well-known for their wonderful locations, natural splendor, and plain architecture. They have great mystic features, just like in the earlier age, of creating marvelous surroundings with coconut orchards, betelnut trees, and clean lakes. When you visit any such Goan temples, a sight of carved sentinels – the giant pillars seen in the light will welcome you.
Oldest Temples – The legendary Brahma Temple, the Mangeshi Temple at Priol in Ponda taluk, the Shanta Durga Temple at the foothills of Kavele, the Maha Ganapati Temple at Khandole, the Mahalaxmi Temple at Bandora, and the Sri Nagesh Maharudra Temple near Ponda are prominent in the list of the oldest temples of Goa. Additionally, there are some temples with an enchanting blend of Portuguese, European, Mughal, and Jain architecture styles.
Everlasting Appeal – The challenging demographics of Goa do not prevent tourists from exploring its spectacular temples. So, those who believe in spiritualism or taking scenic snaps should not forget visiting Goan temples as they are live proof of the gorgeous religious and cultural history of Goa
