Boca de Vaca spring is situated next to the Mahalaxmi Temple in the capital city of Goa. The appearance of this Portuguese site built structure remains aglow with soft decorative light in the evening that gives it a name ‘Boca De Vaca’ literally meaning ‘the face of the cow’.
The floor of the well-lit tunnel inside is made of transparent glass and one can see the spring water flowing under your feet with the background music.
The traces of the spring are still a mystery. The resident of Panjim believe that the water of the spring have healing or medicinal properties and is known to cure many diseases. People wait in queue with buckets to collect the ‘healing waters’ of this spring.
Earlier, Boca de Vaca spring was known as the major source of supplying water to the city. However even today the people of Panaji queue up here with buckets to use the water, as it is known to have medicinal properties which is also used for drinking by the people of Panjim.
