    This is Old Fort Blessed with a fantastic View and wonderful Pebble Beach. It involves quite a walking from the parking.

    View from the cliff is super good and quite scenic. One can make a little effort and visit to Pebble Beach also.

    Worth Visiting

    Beautiful and quiet beach, if you’re on a bike or scooter head for the old road bridge and make your way parallel with the back waters to the estuary then just turn left and follow road. From Patnem it’s a lovely 25 minute pootle, then an ice cold People’s beer at the beach. Great.

    Mallikarjun Temple Sristhal,
    Canacona, Goa.

    The shrine of Mallikarjun, a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, is said to be one of the oldest temple in Goa and is located in the middle of lovely natural environs in a valley. It is situated near the small village of Sristhal, in the southernmost taluka of Canacona. Sristhal is about 5 km drive away from the taluka headquarters of Chaudi which is about 75 kms from Panaji. The temple is believed to be built during the middle of the 16th century, as per the inscriptions near the temple dome, by lineages of the Kshatriya samaj. It was renovated in the year 1778. There are around 14 Mallikarjuna shrines across Goa. The striking similarity in these shrines is that all idols are covered with metallic kavachas. The lingas are believed to be Swaymbhu lingas. According to the archives two olden shrines of Mallikarjun were in Bardez at Assgao and Pomburpa which were destroyed by the Portuguese.

    The temple lies in an enchanting location in a valley, completely surrounded by mountains and lush greenery. The temple is said to be over 200 years old, as per the inscription near the temple dome.

    The temple is believed to have been built around mid16th century by descendants of the Kshatriya Samaj. It was restored in the year 1778. There are some exceedingly lovely carved wooden columns within the temple building which are very unique to this temple and not found in any other shrine in Goa. The carving has been done by accomplished craftsmen who were fetched here from the southern Indian states.

    The six pillars in the mandap (hall) have engravings of the Puranas and Mahabharat. The dwarpal (doorkeeper) on either side of the door leading to the inner sanctum are exquisitely carved . The temple has altars of about 60 Hindu deities. Number of festivals is celebrated with the annual Jatra being the most special amongst them in Goa.

    Festivals like Rathasaptami and Shigmotsav are also celebrated that draw a number of devotees. The exquisite wood and silver carvings found in the temple, which is quite famous, is said to have been set up by Habu Brahmins of the Dravidian dynasty. One can see some of the finest surviving art on the six pillars in the mantapa or the assembly hall. The mantapa or the assembly hall houses one of the wooden pillars which is said to be the oracle pillar in the temple.

    Absolutely loved visiting arc and volunteering for the day. Such a lovely place with lovely animals and staff. We helped to wash the puppies, walked the dogs and have cuddles with all the gorgeous animals there giving them the love they deserve. I felt so happy leaving seeing how well they are treated and the care they have there. Would definitely recommend visiting and volunteering if you go to Goa.

    Must visit if in South Goa!
    This beach is so secluded and you can literally see NO ONE around - that's precisely why it's so beautiful. You'll probably find one shack there and 3 other people came after 30 mins. So it's not accessible directly via car.
    1. Rent a scooty
    2. It's a little off road but worth it
    3. They'll charge INR 50 for entry
    4. After parking your vehicle, you'll have to trek down a little to reach the beach
    But it's the most serene and calm of South Goa totally worth the effort :)
