Benaulim is a town of immense natural beauty, located along the scenic south Goa coastline. Legend has it that Lord Parashurama, incarnation of Lord Vishnu, shot an arrow from the Sahyadri Mountains in adjacent Konkan; the arrow (Baan in Sanskrit) landed at the site of this present-day town. Thus, it was known as Banahalli or Banavalli (the village of the arrow) before the advent of the Portuguese. Ancient Banavalli had a magnificent temple dedicated to Shiva and Parvati, known as Katyayani Baneshvar ruins, of which can be still found in the village. The deities were shifted to Aversa in Northern Kanara (modern Uttara Kannada) in the 16th century.

Goa is also flooded with numerous historical monuments and eye catching sights. For the historically inclined, Goa is just ethereal. There are several Churches in Goa which testify the rich historical past of the city. Some of the popular Churches in Goa are; Mary Immaculate Conception, Reis Magos Church, St. Anne Church, Church of St. Augustine, St. Paul Church etc..
Goa is also home to numerous forts and museums that offer glimpses of a culturally rich state.
