The glamour of Goa is definitely unmatched compared to many of the other places of India. Goa is often thought to only have beaches, but as a matter of fact, Goa is much more than beaches. The architectural wonders of Goa are mind blowing as most of them are an amalgamation of Indian and Portuguese style
Old Goa is popularly known as Velha, Goa is located at a distance of 10 km from Panjim. It’s a historical city of Goa which also served as the capital long ago. The capital was shifted to Panjim because of an epidemic. But some of the archaeological marvels still remain in Old Goa which makes it worth visiting. The remains are a part of the UNESCO world heritage sites.
The most popular church of Old Goa is the Basilica of Bom Jesus. People from across the world come to just visit this church. The church is built in the Baroque style making it different. The church has kept the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier. Every year on 3rd of December the feast of St. Francis Xavier is celebrated. The body of the saint is brought out for people every ten years and this attracts a lot of attention.
Goa is definitely a different place to go and should be on your bucket list.
