Divar Island

@ Panjim (Panaji), Goa

  Ribandar, Divar,Panjim, Goa

A little peace and quiet in this bustling beach town is a pleasure to find. A little away from Panaji, this small island has an interesting historical past. Said to be an integral religious site, the island was home to a number of Hindu temples, like Shree Saptakoteshwar, Shree Dwarkeshwar and Shree Ganesh before the Portuguese invasion. It is also considered to be the first place the Portuguese targeted to convert the Hindu population into Christianity. Only transport to this place is goan ferry which can even accomodate vehicles.
