  • We went as a party from a cruise ship. The drive was through miles of poverty and litter. The car park was strewn with litter. The setting is fabulous but it needs attention and maintenance. By being ...  more »
  • I have long wanted to meet with Hindu temples. So this trip to Goa I with the taxi driver, which you can always find his hotel, went to the temple 3: Lakshmi, Krishna and Shiva. It is on the road to Bondla National Park. This trip proved eventful: nature, and Hinduism. Material from the Internet: Sri Nagesha is situated in 25 km from Panaji (capital city of Goa), in the village of Pondâ near the town of Bandora. The area where the temple long called Nageshi, hence its name. Archaeologists believe that the first Church appeared here at the beginning of the 15th century, but the extant building dates back to the year 1780. Next to the entrance of the Temple stands a sculpture of a black bull Nandi. Inside you can see beautiful carved wooden panels depicting scenes from "the Mahabharata" and "Ramayana", as well as ancient statues of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha, which belong to the VII-VIII centuries. The whole territory of the temple complex is small, she looks well-groomed, tranquility and peacefulness reigns here. The main attraction of the temple is a large sacred pond, especially pochitajushhijsja goancami. It is located in such a way that standing in a certain place, you could see in the water reflection Idol Nageshi in the inner sanctum. The water in the pond is so pure that it fished a lot of carp and a rare Pilgrim refuses treatment of bathing in the pond. I think that churches must visit, then India will be remembered forever.

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
