However, centuries under the Portuguese rule played a major role in the obliteration and dislocation of many temples especially in the areas of the Old Conquests in the early years. One therefore finds the majority of Hindu Temples relocated in Ponda Taluka today.

Places of Worship, The temples of Goa are in spirit like most Hindu temples in India, based around a deity
which is worshipped.
Noroa River, the Arvalem Waterfall, and the Brahma Camandolu or Water Pot of Brahma - the creator, in the old Goa Hills are the main Hindu pilgrimage spots in Goa.
One more sacred place is Sidhanath Mountain in Borim Village. Amongst the myriad temples found here, there is a vast representation of the gods and goddesses of the Hindu pantheon, which testifies to the catholicity of the people's beliefs as well as their mutual tolerance.
Indeed, Goa is could be loved just for this rare quality which one feels imperceptibly on even a short visit.
The welcome is genuine and holds back nothing. Live and let live is a potent vibration in the atmosphere.
The more the avenues to the beyond the better it is for the people here. Little wonder that despotic tactics never lasted beyond a brief spell in Goa, while experimenters in new ways of living have found their haven
The architecture of Goan temples is a little different mostly because of historical reasons.
The fundamental design of any Hindu temple is organized around the central shrine or the "Garbagriha" or the "sanctum sanctorum" that houses the main deity.
Religious Places in Goa - A tower or "Shikara" arises from the main shrine and is traditionally pyramidal shaped.
There are usually two or more smaller shrines housing other deities known as "Parivar Devatas" around the entrance to the Garbagriha.
