  • Goai/ˈɡoʊ.ə/ is India's smallest state by area and the fourth smallest by population. Located in West India in the region known as the Konkan, it is bounded by the state of Maharashtra to the north, and by Karnataka to the east and south, while the Arabian Sea forms its western coast. Goa is India's richest state with a GDP per capita two and a half times that of the country as a whole.[4] It was ranked the best placed state by the Eleventh Finance Commission for its infrastructure and ranked on top for the best quality of life in India by the National Commission on Population
capital of goa
. Capital of goa
  • The official name for the capital of Goa is Panaji, though in Konkani it is often pronounced as 'Ponnji'. The Portuguese name for it was 'Pongim', from which originated the other name by which it is known - Panjim. The name Panjim is used mostly by English speaking people.
  • The capital of Goa lies on the banks of the Mandovi estuary, in the district of North Goa. Panaji means 'the land that does not flood'. Panaji, the capital of Goa, is built around a church facing a prominent square. Panaji has some beautiful Portuguese Baroque style buildings. The riverside too offers a fine view.

Go Goa, Go CarnivalSimply applauded as the festival of fun, frolic and music, the Carnival is celebrated just before Lent in February. You can see colourful parades trimmed with mind-blowing music and lavish floats, and the uproarious festivities of three days are presided over by King Momo.


Merriment In Monsoons

  • While Goa celebrates 365 days of the year, the monsoon festivals are fascinating as the rituals around them are a passageway to ancient fertility rites and worship of the elements that are long forgotten. The Sao Joah (Saint John) feast is an interesting occassion in which the village folks jump into monsoon drenched wells. Goans explain the custom with a reference to St. John, the Baptist, leaping in his mother's womb when she met Mary, the mother of Jesus. You can see a number of makeshift rafts - sangodd - or boats adorned impressively floating on streams and rivers in some north Goans villages.
goan tourism
Goan tourism
  • Goa is rich in folk culture with a delightful blend of vigorous Konkani folk songs and remnants of Portuguese dance and music. Goa is best known for its spectacular beaches, but there are many old churches, monuments, temples and museums, that are a must see.Goa is very proud of the numerous churches dotted across this Indian state. Many of the Goa churches are outstanding and ideal cases of Christian architecture. Most of the churches colonial Portuguese cathedrals and are framed with columns and pilasters.
goan beachs
  • Anjuna Beach, Goa
  • With its fluorescent painted palm trees and infamous full moon parties, ANJUNA, 8-km west of Mapusa, is Goa at its most "alternative". Designer leather and lycra may have superseded cotton Kaftans, but most people's reasons for coming are the same as they were in the 1970s: dancing and lying on the beach slurping tropical fruit. While browsing in the area have a day trip to the famous flea market.
baga beach
Baga Beach
  • Baga, 10-km west of Mapusa, is basically an extension of Calangute; even the locals are unable to decide where ends and the other begin. Lying in the lee of a rocky, wooded headland, the only difference between this far northern end of the beach and its more congested centre is that the scenery here is marginally more varied and picturesque.
benaulim beach
Benaulim Beach
  • Only a decade ago, this fishing and rice-farming village, scattered around the coconut groves and paddy fields between the main Colva-Mobor Road and the dunes, had barely made it onto the backpackers map. Now, the shady lane leading through it is studded with guesthouses and souvenir stalls while the paddy fields on the outskirts are gradually disappearing under a rash of gigantic luxury resorts and time-share apartment blocks. For the time being, however, this remains a peaceful and welcoming place to unwind.
language in goa
Language in goa
  • Goa boasts about a fusion of languages. Portuguese was widely spoken until Goa was liberated from the Portugal regime in 1961. In fact, the older generations can still speak Portuguese. However, the main languages spoken now in Goa are Konkani and Marathi. Marathi is widely taught in schools too.
  • Yet almost everyone in Goa can speak in English and Hindi. Thanks to its chequered history, Goa is a multi-lingual state. Having had people of various regions, ethnic races and religions from India and abroad settling in Goa, their language too has inflected accordingly. So, the total number of languages used in Goa are English, Portuguese, Konkani, Hindi and Marathi. Konkani, however, is the official language of Goa. Konkani is written in the Devanagri script. The other main languages spoken in the state are Marathi, Kannad and Urdu. Gujarati and Hindi are also spoken by a considerable number of people in the state.

Normally the toiling masses ‘eats for living’ and others are more interested in the taste and variety of the dishes.
