India : Goa : The Jewel of India - 1

Guys, last year I had visited Goa. There are plenty of moments I earned during my visit. It is my bad luck that some moments are missed out from my memory. Whatever I remembered, tried to put in front of you.

Guys, Goa has it all, sun, sand and sea. It is nature's gift to mankind. An unique blend of Latin & Oriental, incredibly rich in monuments and historical sites, dazzling variety of exotic flora and fauna. Lush green hinterland, rivers that offer water adventure sports that will thrill you beyond expectations.

Goa has a timeless charm. It;s uniqueness lies in the fact that whilst creating a delicate synthesis of various cultures, it has retained its inherent soul. The Portuguese named it 'The pearl of the orient'. Goa owes its dominant Christian influences to almost four centuries of Portuguese rule. The Portuguese came in 1510 & gained control. The ensuing Portuguese influences produced a blend of East and West, which is exotic and distinct. Christmas and Carnival are celebrated as enthusiastically as Diwali or Durga Puja.

Goa, Jewel of India, is studded with a number of churches that remain witnesses to the intense religious history of the land.
