It occupies 11,000 sq ft of floor area. It is built in an unusual style of architecture and has an interesting blend of Hindu and Portuguese cultures. Also outstanding are its lush gardens that have still managed to preserve their historical features and have, since old times, been known as the most beautiful pleasure gardens in Goa.

Visit the ancient Chandreshwar Temple also known as the Chandranath Temple. It is located on the Chandranath parvat, a heavily wooded hill about 350 mt high and is dedicated to an incarnation of Shiva, the Lord of the Moon. The temple is associated with the Bhoja dynasty who were the rulers of the region till the 8th century. Also from the Bhoja's family deity, Lord Chandreshwar the name of their capital Chandrapur (today's Chandor) was derived. Inside the temple's inner sanctum, the Shivalinga is made of a natural outcrop of rock and is placed in such a way that it gets bathed on full moon nights in moonlight.

Next door, a smaller temple is dedicated to Chandreshwar's attendant deity, Bhootnath who is the lord of ghosts. A palanquin procession of the deity is held every Monday evening. The main festival here is the five-day Hanuman Jayanti, along with Dushera and Mahashivratri.

Visit the popular Goan beach fort Cabo de Rama. Fort Cabo de Rama is named after Lord Rama, also known as Cape Rama Fort.
