Your Goa shore excursion begins with a warm welcome and picked up by professional guide and driver who will take you through the small-Portuguese-style villages lined up by several large but modest houses. The first stop is the Shanta Durga Temple – a Hindu temple but following the similar structure with a pagoda. Standing out from the greenery nature is the white towers and the temple with red tiled roofs, while inside, the chariot of the goddess is lighted up with the royalty color – gold and black.
