Day 3 : FULL DAY SOUTH GOA

This day includes full day tour to South Goa. Visit to the Dona Paula beach which is located at a distance of 7 km from Panjim and popularly called the lovers' paradise in Goa. The name of the beach has been kept after the then Viceroy's daughter Dona Paula de Menezes who was believed to be madly in love with a fisherman. Her insane love for the fisherman drove her to jump off the cliff when the Viceroy refused to strike a marriage alliance between the two Every year thousands of tourists come here to get a share of their enjoyment and the story attached to it also makes it an interesting place to visit. Cuddled in the southern portion of the peninsula, the beach also has its significance because this is where two prominent rivers Zuari and Mandovi meets the Arabian Sea. The beach offers exceptional views of the palm trees and Mormugao Harbor. The view of the mound promises a serene relaxation.
The elegant coastline presents a silvery burnish especially when the sun begins to set. Dona Paula also has some attractive goodies on display in the bustling marketplace outside the beach. You will get a host of charming products like straw hats, feni, hair accessories and much more. The prime attraction of the beach is the pumping water sport adventure activities and the wonderful sea-food joints situated near the beach. So if you choose to lounge in the sun or decide to try your hand with the sports, you are sure to have a wonderful time here.
Next comes Panaji, the capital city of Goa. Panaji, also known as Panjim, is the state capital of Goa, in southwest India. Located on the banks of the Mandovi River, the city has cobblestone streets lined with colorful villas and buildings from the Portuguese colonial era. Palm-fringed Miramar Beach sits at the confluence of the river and the Arabian Sea.
Later witness The Mangueshi temple or the Manguesh Devasthan is perhaps the most famous of all Goan temples. It is located at Priol in Ponda taluka, about 21 kilometers from the capital city of Panaji. The surrounding area is known as Mangueshi.
In ancient times the temple was located at Kushasthali (presently known as Cortalim). During the Portuguese Inquisition, a number of Hindu temples were destroyed in Goa.
To avoid a similar fate, the devotees of God Manguesh removed the linga (symbol of Lord Shiva) from the original temple and transferred it in the middle of the night to the present location at Priol which was under the control of Adil Shah. If you're looking for a unique cultural experience while in the South Goa, spice plantation tour in Ponda is the perfect go to experience. This tour is all about a short walking tour along all of the spices and told us all about their history and uses.
The plantation is spread over a large tract of verdant land, which offers the perfect setting for you to soak in a pure unadulterated nature. Start your tour by getting picked up by the driver in an air-conditioned vehicle and begin your guided spice plantation tour at Pond. Post tour return drop off to hotel, enjoy overnight stay at hotel.
