Shantadurga Temple : The temple is dedicated to Shantadurga the goddess who mediates between Vishnu and Shiva. The deity is also called ‘Santeri’ colloquially. Purana talks of a battle between Shiva and Vishnu The battle was so fierce that the God Brahma prayed to Goddess Parvati to intervene, which she did in the form of Shantadurga.
Spice Plantation : The spice plantations of Goa are quite popular as a tourist attraction. On a typical excursion to the spice plantations, you shall begin your day by starting to explore the fields and the farms. It is very astonishing to see men climbing on very tall trees while maintaining a balance and at the same time plucking betel nut fruits from those swaying trees.
Dona Paula : Dona Paula is a famous tourist destination with number of small and big hotels . Donna Paula has its own story which can be read on google . You can also enjoy water sports activities while you are here .
Miramar Beach : Situated at the confluence of the Mandovi River and the Arabian Sea, it is a small and beautiful beach that occasionally hosts some events.
Panaji city : One of India’s most relaxed state capitals, Panaji (Panjim) crowds around the peninsula overlooking the broad Mandovi River, where cruise boats and floating casinos ply the waters, and advertising signs cast neon reflections in the night.
A glorious whitewashed church lords over the animated city centre, a broad leafy boulevard skirts around the river, and grand colonial-era buildings rub shoulders with arty boutiques, old-school bookshops, state-of-the-art malls and backstreet bars.
Nowhere is the Portuguese influence felt more strongly than here, where the late afternoon sun lights up yellow houses with purple doors, and around each corner you’ll find restored ochre-coloured mansions with terracotta-tiled roofs, wrought-iron balconies and arched oyster-shell windows.
A day in Panaji really is an essential part of the Goan experience.
Boat cruise : A perfect place to sit and have some snacks,drinks etc . You can also enjoy the dance performance by the performers . Do not forget to have a view of the amazing sea over there .
