PONDA AND AROUND

A busy commercial centre, Ponda lends its name to the taluka (sub-district) of the same name, which is renowned for its 17th- and 18th-century Hindu temples, tucked away in thick forests and the Safa Shahouri Masjid. To the north of the town is a butterfly sanctuary, with over 100 species while to the northeast, near the village of Khandepar, is a cluster of rock-cut caves. In and around Ponda, there are many farms that grow numerous aromatic spices.
