It is very difficult to describe the eternal charm of Goa in words. So many learned persons have tried to put the expression of beauty this place offers in their thoughtful & magical words but I am sure that even they would know that they could not do complete justice to this place.
This is one of those places where history and contemporary period goes hand in hand. Goa is a perfect blend of Eastern and Western culture. From Churches to schools to forts to Temples, Goa has got it all. The place is situated at western coastal belt know as Konkan. Indian Army liberated Goa from Portuguease in the year 1961. Goa was made 25th Indian state in the year 1987. Majority of populations comprises of Catholic and Hindu communities. Konkani, Hindi, Marathi & English are the main languages spoken. Then you will always find those smart taxi drivers & tour operators speaking in French, German etc as fluently as their native language.
Goa is effectively divided between North Goa & South Goa.
