What you'll do

Hop on to this historical & nature trail in Chandor - the ancient capital of Goa during the Kadamba era, 10th to the 14th century. Chandor was once the location of the capital of Chandrapur rulers, which also boasts of a fort and a temple within its citadel.
We begin the walk at a beautiful well known heritage house, where you get to see the unique traditional interiors & understand the lifestyle of the old Goans. Then we drive down to Rivona Caves, considered to be dug in the 6th or 7th century by Buddhist monks. Afterwards we proceed to have some comfort home cooked lunch by the banks of the river, where you'll also see rock carvings!
After filling our tummy, we head to Narayandev temple - an ancient temple in ruins and we end trip at Bubble Lake at Netravali. There will be some surprises along the way!

I'm a Fashion Designer by profession and my cousin, Rohan, is a Mechanical Engineer. We both belong to one of the Goa's Well Known Heritage family (with Portuguese roots), because of which we have been very inclined towards the Goan History and Heritage. Rohan is really passionate about The History of Goa and I love traveling. Combining our love for heritage and travel we thought together as a team we would be the best in spreading our knowledge. Hence we created 'Walk With History Goa', through which we have curated fun and interesting History/Heritage Trails/ Walks in Goa.

The chandor heritage walk is a memorable experience. We had an absolutely wonderful time with Puja and Rohan. What makes a heritage walk memorable, is the knowledge of the person who takes you on the trail. Rohan is brilliant! Puja is like a breath of fresh air. She's talkative, intuitive and makes you feel at ease. The trail offers surprises untold and unseen. What's most important is that both Rohan and Puja are interested in doing a good job. This trail is not just a duty, an obligation for them. It's also their passion. They actually went out of the way to make sure my parents, who are senior citizens, would be comfortable. The chandor trail is not just a walk through Goan history, but a glimpse of their legacy and heritage.
