Sanquelim Tourism & Travel Guide

Trips and Itineraries for Sanquelim

Can't blame them, for many Indians, visiting one of our tiger reserves is the only wildlife experience they can vouch for, but a unconventional traveler I am, wildlife outsides our protected areas is far more interesting to me then watching tigers in our tiger reserves, most of which have turned into glorified zoos.So I packed my backpack and took Rajdhani train from Delhi to Madgaon, destination was thivim, closest train station to Sanquelim, the field station of Wild Otters....

Sanquelim, Goa 403505, India
This 50 meters waterfall is an underwhelming sight for those who have witnessed the Dudhsagar. But not many people know this isolated little waterfall and is great for spending some quiet time with the sound of water.Around the fall are other hidden places in Goa such as the Rudreshwar Temple and Arvalem Caves.9.

Sanquelim, Goa 403505, India
Apart from beaches and waterfalls, one can find beautiful examples of historical architectures and monuments.One such monument is Arvalem caves, which is located 9km from Bicholim, North goa.These rock cut caves are also called Pandava caves derived from five Pandavas of Mahabharata.As the legend has it, the Pandavas sought refuge in these caves during their exile. The presence of five compartments and Shivlingas in the cave complex provides relevance of this fact. However, the caves have also been claimed to be of Buddhist origin due to the presence of a huge statue of Buddha near the place. The architectural style of the caves also speaks loud of the Buddhist possession. The opinions regarding the origin of the caves have been ambivalent from years.The architecture of the caves is yet appealing.The presence of the famous Rudreshwar temple and a waterfall in its vicinity makes this place a must visit in Goa.
