The majestic and magnificent laterite forts of Goa have defended their owners over the ages from the enemies attacking through waterways and land.

These forts lay peacefully now; however, when the canons and modernized artillery were added by the Portuguese, they proved to be of equal worth to any of the forts of high citadels or intricate defence architecture. This trail is for all those who love to hear about trade, politics and strategies. And we have a bonus! The breathtaking and panoramic views!

  • Aguada Fort

  • it was my first walking trail with Exclamations! actually i wanted to go on walking trail with Sawani and yesterday i got an oppurtunity to do Bandoda walking trail ..it started from Nageshi temple parking ground where we got ourselves introduced .it was nice to see people from different walks of life, interested in our heritage ..we started with Jain basti ,a protected site under restoration which stands as proof of some of the early settelement of jain traders in Goa.after that we walked around to see some herostones(called Veergal which is infact a memorial of braves who died to protect land )still standing for centuries ..we saw a shivalinga on the border or shim of the Nageshi village which is again centuris old and still protected and worshiped by villagers
    we took a break for some delicious local bhaji pav and chay in restaurent near the temple .after that we visited Shivtirth palace of king Soundekars followed by commentary by sawani on how they retained their title of king .then we went to visit Shri Nagesh temple with a beautiful temple lake or tali . temple is nicely decorated as navratra is going on. and then as we walked to Shri Mahalaxmi temple , Sawani narrated a heart touching legend about satto fatto. we had glass of refreshing kasai a local herbal drink just outside the temple. our trail ended with darshan of Shri Mahalaxmi in a beautifully decorated makhar.. to summ it up i was a memorable trail. i strongly feel that if we know about our rich traditions ,culture and heritage we can tell the world what Goa is all about . .
    i would like to thank Sawani for the valuable information she shared with us in an interesting manner.. looking forward for more such kind of trails in future..best wishes for exclamations!
