On our way to ride Elephants our driver suggested we go via the ancient temple. Built in the 1500s this incredible structure is well worth visiting. The Temple attracts large numbers of religious tourists who take the opportunity to visit and attend the services held in the Temple.

This temple located on the top of hill.Road is little rough and small.Many turns are there. And last you have to climb 100 steps.In the rainy season they are slippery.You will get margao city sight here. The temple is medium in size and you will not get anything here.Beautiful secenary ,greenary mountains are main attraction.
