Temples of Goa are not just ideal for spiritual practices but also repository of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Goan people. Though these shrines have been built strictly according to the rules laid down in Vastu Shastra, their exteriors often show western architectural influences in structural embellishments.

These temples are surrounded by fruit orchards and gardens with fragrant flowers and bring peace to the mind of the worshippers.


KAMALA MANKEKAR has widely traveled across India and is a ken observer of architectural beauty. Her extensive travelling has exposed her to a wide variety of Hindu temples and shrines.
