i had a look into the places and made some notes on how to find things on google and rough locations :

North goa=====================

Corjuem – abandoned Fort in Aldona - easy … really nearby baga /n/e inland . goa, 10 miles inland [google Corjuem Fort].

Mid Goa:======================

Tambdi Surla - Mahadeva Temple - 15ml inland from colva , mid goa [google map Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary and Mollem National Park] . several miles from duds waterfalls. built the temple from the finest weather-resistant grey-black basalt, just n/e of mollem on google maps.. cool small black temple worth it

Devi Mahalsa Temple Kalash – led colour lit at night just sth east of panaji is amazing pisa style white temple column . [Shri Mahalasa Devasthan google] .. 2 exact same ones nearby … similar shri mangesh named tight next to each other !

Arvalem - rock cut budha Caves and water fall – 30-40 mins east from panaji near sanquelim.

Rivona - Cave Temple –[ towards duds falls] see both caves , …blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Go%20Goa . Direction from Panajim: Panajim - NH17 - Margao - Take left turn - Quepem - Tilamol - Right turn – Rivona

Safa Masjid - Mosque in Ponda [next to panjim]. small neat bld on lake with "prayer lake" [?]

South goa==========================

Usgalimal - Rock Carvings in Sanguem Taluk – nr kurdi . do from palolem in 30/40 mins ? google directions works palolem to Usgalimal. Quirky .

Kurdi - Mahadeva Temple nr usgalimal, do from palolem . cool but Tambdi Surla Is better !

im gonna try and do a few on a bike !
