Goa - Holy Cross Chapel at Baradi

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

On our way back from Cabo de Rama Fort we decided to make a short de tour to the Holy Cross Chapel of Baradi. 
Road to Baradi Chapel
 As always it is fun driving on these smooth deserted roads with thick forestation on either side of the road and blue skies for  company.  What more should I ask for?

There are signboards put up on the road plus if you ask the locals they will guide you to this place as it is a very famous Shrine. Many miracles have taken place here. The Shrine is visited by people from all over Goa during the Novena's. Novena's are held for Nine days before the Feast. Not sure about the history of this place. 

The Shrine (Chapel) was closed when we reached. Services are held in the morning and evening. We were not alone, we had a few dogs for company. I guess they are the local dogs and they kept following us in the premises. 
There are Two main Cross in it's premises. Prayed that my blog goes places :)  and then headed to see the amazing view The Chapel had to offer. 

As the Chapel is atop the hill the view is indeed beautiful. As it was a hot sunny day we could see the sea in a distance, heavily congested coconut trees hiding houses in them and a couple of water bodies.

Life here is so SUSEGAD meaning slow. 

After mesmerizing our self in the view we headed off to Margao City.

I have been to this place. It is as sussegad as you have described. In fact, time seems to stop still around there. As always, lovely pictures. And yes, may your blog go places.
