City Information

Overview
Now the road takes you to the magnificent kingdom of Goa! The people of this kingdom are strong, prudent and very hardworking. The kingdom of Goa is the most important in India. It is civilized, having famous orchards and water. It is the coolest place in India and it is the most plentiful in foodstuffs.

History
Goa has a rich and varied history. It was part of the Mauryan Empire in the 3 rd century BC, followed by the rule of the Satvahanas of Kolhapur and the Bhojas who made Chandor their capital. From 580 - 750 AD the Chalukyas of Badami held sway over Goa until the Silharas took control in 1086 AD.

Temples
Goa abounds in temples, ranging from the famous ones of Mangueshi and Shantadurga to the well preserved relic of Tamdi Surla, dating back to about the 12th century.

Beaches

Shaped like the new moon, Goa’s beaches are known the world over. Fringed by swaying palm and coconut trees with cool and comfortable shacks offering a variety of refreshments, Goa’s 103 km coastline is blessed with the most enchanting beaches lapped by the Arabian Sea.. And almost all of them are swimmer friendly with the assured presence of lifeguards on all the popular beaches.

Turtle Nesting Sites

Morjim, Galgibag and Agonda beaches – the largest nesting places of the giant Olive Ridley turtle. An amazing phenomenon of nature, this is a regular annual occurrence. While earlier it was a hunting ground for sea turtles, today it is a modal conservation centre.
