The tiny piece of paradise- Goa,
lies in the West Coast of India and is spread over an area of
3,702 sq. kms. With a coastline of 105 kms it is washed by the
Arabian Sea. Goa's outstanding attractions are its serene and
scenic beauty, diverse landscape- wide, sandy, palm - fringed
beaches, clean waters, delicious food and hospitable people with
a rich cultural milieu.
Goan culture is a confluence of many religions, faiths and traditions. People from various religions live in absolute communal harmony and participate wholeheartedly in the religious festivals of others. The Portuguese invaders destroyed many temples and mosques. As a result most of the temples are relatively new, though some date back to over 400 years.
There is no sea food like the Goan sea food. The shoreline stretched over miles, numerous river streams and the ponds produce the most amazing variety of fishes and other sea food. Delicious tiger prawns, oysters, shellfish, and black river crabs are available in plenty. The variety in fishes includes king fish, tuna, shark, rock fish and sardines. You can never have enough of the delectable Squids, cuttlefish, sea prawns, lobsters and mussels available here.
