Safa Masjid at Ponda Goa

Archaeological Survey of India has notified this location as the National Monument. Being one of the few existing mosques built by Bijapur sultans, this 16th-century monument has a water tank normally found in front of Hindu temples. This indicates a clear influence of Hindu sculpture on the Muslim rulers back then. The religious structure is quite serene and quiet with its lush greeneries around.
