in North Goa is the Bardez province, that has to offer Fort Aguada,
Reis Margos Church, Candolim, Saligao, Mapusa, Chapora, and a
few beaches to hold your attention.
in North is also the Pernem Province that has to its ontribution
places like Pernem, Shri Bhagawati Temple, Tiracola Fort, Alorna
Fort, Arambol, Mandrem and Morgim Beach.
Bicholim Province is another that adds to the North of Goa. It
delights travelers with Bicholim, Shri Datta Mandir, Vithal Mandir,
Arvalem Caves and Waterfalls, Maem Lake and not to miss the Saptakoteshwar
landlocked province of Satari does not have many beaches and historical
places to offer to its visitors. It is mostly forested and to
get to the main town of Valpoi it is at best to have private transport
not to get harassed by too many bus transfers.
at this juncture, one can see the Brahma Temple built in the 5th
century situated in the village of Carambolim 50 kms. from the
district of Panjim. One will find very few temples dedicated to
Lord Brahma the creator of the Universe.
Satari, is the Ponda Province known for the Hindu Temples it houses.
It was perhaps the least touched by the Portuguese of all the
regions in Goa. One can see temples like Shri Shantadurga, Shri
Nagesh, Shri Mahalaxmi, Shri Gopal Ganapati, Shri Mahalsa, Shri
Mangesh and the Ganesh Temple. One also comes across the Safa
Shahouri Mosque and the Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary.
