SIGHTS OF GOA

The Indian state of Goa, miniature in size, is comfortably located on the coast of the Arabian Sea and is a place of pilgrimage for all kinds of people: from hippies to oligarchs. This place is not just a fashionable resort with magnificent beaches and a mass of diverse entertainment, but also the most interesting objects of world historical and cultural heritage. Beach holidays, windsurfing, diving, shopping, exploring various currents of religions, Ayurveda, mind-expanding meditations – all this you will find in the state of Goa. And countless local attractions (natural sites, reserves, temples) will allow you to fully feel the spirit of Goa.
Temple mangesh
Architecture
Arriving in this Indian state, you can not do without exploring the religious and architectural monuments located in Old Goa, a very beautiful town declared by UNESCO as the heritage of mankind. Here you should definitely see the old, built during the period of Portuguese rule, the Church of Jesus’ Basilica and the largest Christian church in India – the Cathedral of St. Catherine. The Hindu temples of Shantaduurg, Mangesh and Mahals are very beautiful in their external and internal decoration. Temple Mangesh, at the same time accommodating 500 people, is one of the most beautiful buildings. It stands out for a seven-story white tower, elegant columns, skillful 19th century chandeliers, a temple pond.
Natural attractions of Goa
You can get to know the nature of the state, its flora and fauna in numerous reserves and in the Anshi National Park.
Bondle Reserve
Bondle’s small reserve is divided into two parts. In the first you can visit the zoo and botanical garden, and the second part is almost a wild zone. Here many animals and birds living in India (bison, wild boars, leopards, bison, Indian peacocks, monkeys) freely walk around. You can consider them in natural habitat and at close range. And the elephant riding service makes visiting Bondula even more attractive.
The huge, 40 hectare plantation, on which grows a lot of plants and trees, is located near the city of Savva. Here you can see “live” how tobacco, breadfruit, coconut and pineapple palm trees, mangoes, papayas, grapefruit and jack-trees hung with 20-pound fruits grow.
Remarkable is the huge waterfall Dudhsagar (“milky ocean”) located in North Goa. The water here falls from a height of 600 meters, forming a mountain lake where you can cool off.
In Goa, you can go to the plantation of spices to see with your own eyes how fragrant cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla grow in nature.
Those who wish to buy souvenirs should go to the legendary Anjuna to the flea market, which sells handmade bronze, silver, wooden and cotton products.
Arambola beaches
Lovers of fun in Goa should go in February. It was at this time that the carnival under the motto “Eat, drink, have fun!” Passes for three days, with douche of everyone and everything.
If you are eager for peace, we recommend you to go to the wild beaches of Arambola with beautiful nearby cliffs and a freshwater lake.
Love interesting meetings? Go to Candolim – a place where people from the Osho Ashram meet.
Goa’s cuisine is also a kind of tourist attraction. The diet of local residents is rice, spices, fish, seafood, coconuts, vegetables, fruits. Of these, they prepare all sorts of delicious and healthy dishes, the main of which is a curry of fish or seafood. Delicious local bread and traditional feni drink.
The countless sights of Goa are worth it to come here and personally meet with such an interesting and multi-faceted India.
