Each worship place of Goa has its own significance and uniqueness that you can read about in our related sections.

Goa Temples
Goa is famous for its temples that attract numerous devotees from all over the world. Many people tend to think of Goa as a Christian community and are not aware of the famous temples located here. During the Portuguese rule, many Hindu temples were destroyed in a zeal to spread Christianity.

Goa Mosques
Most people think that Goa is predominantly a Christian state. Unlike the popular belief, Goa has a majority of Hindus and also has a Muslim population. Goa has two very famous mosques where the Muslims come and offer prayers. The Goan mosques have been built in the typical Muslim architectural style complete with the domes, pillars, et al.

Goa Churches
