The Vetals of Goa: Netravali

Today we call on the Vetal of Netravali, a remote village in Goa‘s forested southeast corner. The shrine is even further removed from the village but is well worth a visit, for the subject here cuts an imposing presence. In these rural pockets vestiges of ancient ways of life are still sensed.

See this post for an introduction to the Vetal mythos. All the posts on this theme are consolidated here.
