Overview

South Goa is a popular tourist destination in India, known for its beautiful beaches, rich cultural heritage, and ancient temples. If you're planning a trip to South Goa, there are several must-visit attractions that you shouldn't miss, including the Old Goa Church, Mangeshi Temple, Santadurga Temple, Dona Paula, Panjim Church, Boat Cruise, and Balaji Temple.

The Old Goa Church, also known as the Basilica of Bom Jesus, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular Christian pilgrimage center. The church's baroque architecture, intricate carvings, and beautiful frescoes are a testament to Goa's rich cultural heritage.

The Mangeshi Temple is a famous Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva, known for its impressive architecture and annual festival held in January. The temple's towering white facade and sanctum sanctorum are a sight to behold.

The Santadurga Temple, another popular Hindu temple in Goa, is dedicated to the goddess of the same name. It is located in the village of Kavalem and boasts a towering entrance gate and dome-shaped roof.

Dona Paula is a picturesque beach known for water sports and stunning views of the Arabian Sea. The beach is named after Dona Paula de Menezes, a Portuguese noblewoman.

The Panjim Church, also known as the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church, is a prominent landmark in the capital city of Panaji. It features a striking white facade, bell tower, and beautiful stained-glass windows.

A boat cruise along the Mandovi River is a must-do activity for tourists visiting Goa. The cruise provides a glimpse of Goa's rich cultural heritage and scenic landscapes.

The Balaji Temple is a relatively new addition to Goa's list of temples, built in 2005 and inspired by the famous Tirupati Balaji temple in Andhra Pradesh. The temple's towering gopuram and large prayer hall are a sight to behold.

Dona Paula in Goa offers stunning vistas of the Arabian Sea

Dona Paula Beach is one of the best beaches in Goa. Best place to visit with friends and family. Very pleasant atmosphere. Cool breeze in evening time I suggest visiting Beach Shack’s adjacent to the beaches in Goa. Dona Paula Beach is one of the best places to visit Beach Shack. Boat ride from Candolim beach 🏝️ to Dona Paula Grand Island is excellent You will have very good time for sure. Plan to visit morning or evening time to have fulfillment enjoy.
