Chitra, have they 'renovated' this temple ? Is it a fairly recent one?

chitra said...

?
Have you seen this temple earlier?
They might have renovated this as most of the temples look bright and appear new.

I've been to this temple. But it looks lovelier at night when it is well-lit :) I'm still fascinated by those sthambas in most Goan temples.
