WE visited the Kings palace there, which had its own water system. We visited the Queen's quarters with tall surounding walls. There was a museum near the Elephant Garage. We visited and I took a few snapshots of the various god figures. Now, I am not an authority on Hindu religion. So I took the photos to show you some of the god figures. They are usually accompanied by an icon, or physical detail. For example, Shiva is always accompanied by a trident. Ganesha is always has an Elephant head, the water goddess always has a water jug. ( and very nice breasts)
We took the 5:50 AM train back down the coast to Old Goa (8 hours). Next post will be from the old Portugese colony.
