India - 'Things To Do In Goa'
by Ken English
There are so many things to do in Goa, it is difficult to know where to start.
Firstly there is some of the most stunning buildings to visit, and a trip to Panaji will lead you St Cajetan’s Church, Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate, Secretariat’s Building, the Se cathedral; Asia’s largest church and Basilica of Bom Jesus.
If you are a museum lover, then the Rachel Museum of Christian Art is unmissable, and you can add to this list the Kerkar Art Complex, and the Cocoon Art Gallery.
For those interested in military history, you must visit Fort Aguada.
Temples are another ‘must see’ in Goa, and principally on your list should be the Shree Mahalaxmi Temple, the Shree BhagawatiTemple, the Shree Hanuman Temple, and the Damodar Temple. You should also visit the holy centre of Safa Shahouri Masjid.
There are several wildlife sanctuaries, and you must visit the Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary which is rich in wildlife, and a definite must for birdwatchers. The Dudhsagar Waterfalls are a mighty 600 meters high, and there are few more impressive waterfalls. Finally you could if you wish take an elephant ride. The Carambolin Lake is a place to visit for bird watching, possibly a bit boring for children, so take them to the artificial Mayem Lake, where you can take them in pedal boats, and if you choose to, try the Kesarval medicinal Spring bath.
Most Goa Hotels have Ayuvedic Therapies, which are reputed to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul, but the most famous place for Ayuvedic Therapy is Keri village..
Why not take a Crocodile Cruise into the backwaters around Goa, and see not only crocodiles but also all sorts of wildlife. Water is so closely associated with life that a river cruise on the River mandovi is yet another option.
Finally we return to the beautiful beaches of Goa where apart from sunbathing, why not try parasailing or jet skiing.
The list whilst by no means endless will I hope help you to plan your vacation in Goa.
