Lure of the Romantic Goa:
Panaji is one of the most of India's smallest and most pleasant state capital. Built on the south of banks of the wide Mandovi River, it officially became the capital of Goa in 1843, though the Portuguese viceroys shifted their residence from outskirts of old Goa to the former place of Adil Shah in Panaji as early as 1759. While most people pass through Panaji on their way to the beaches or old Goa , the atmosphere is easy and people are friendly. In the oldest part of the town, the Portuguese heritage has survived remarkably well; there are narrow winding streets, old houses with over changing balconies and red-titled roofs whitewashed churches and numerous small bar and cafes. Portuguese sign are still visible over many premises. Many signs in Portuguese are still visible over shops, cafe's and administrative buildings. Its 'sights' are few, but among those worth visiting are the old Church of the Immaculate Conception (on the hillside at one end of the Municipal Gardens) and the Mahalakshmi Temple. The nearest beach is at Miramar, 3 Km along the road to Dona Paula.
Population : 93,000(1991).

Old Goa:
*"Spiritual Heart of Portuguese Goa"*
Old Goa, nine km west of Panaji, half dozen imposing churches and cathedrals (among the largest in Asia) are all that remain of that remain of the Portuguese capital that was once said to rival Lisbon in magnificent. Some of the old buildings have become museums and maintained by Archaeological Survey of India -- a maintenance is very necessary because if the lime plaster which protect the laterite structures is not renewed frequently, the monsoons will reduce the buildings to ruin.

At the time, it was a fortress surrounded by wall, tower and moat, and contained temples, mosques and the large palace Adil Shah. Today, none of these structures remain expect for a fragment of the gate way to the place. Under the Portuguese, the city grew rapidly in size and splendor, despite an epidemic in 1543 which wiped out a large percentage of the the population. Many huge Churches Monasteries and convent were erected by the various religion orders which came to Goa under royal mandates. The Franciscans were the first to arrive.
The city Muddled on into the early 19th century as the administrative capital of Portugal's eastern empire. In 1843, the capital was shifted to Panaji .It is also called Velha Goa.

VISITING SEASON:
All Year Round; Goa is like that.

Vasco Da Gama:Vasco de Gama Pillar, Goa Travel Guide
General Information:

This spick and span coastal town popularly known as Vasco was originally called Sambhaji. Imposing multi-storeyed buildings and a church dominate the city centre here. Close to Marmagoa Harbour and three km from Dabolim airport, Vasco-Da-Gama is the terminus of the railway line into Goa. As the Konkan Railway becomes fully operational, however, even fewer travellers will need to venture up to this unexciting town. The port town of Vasco-Da-Gama on the on the southern bank of river Zuari is connected to Marmagoa Harbour by an isthmus. The capital had been shifted in 1703 by the then Viceroy from Old Goa to Vasco, due to the periodic plague that affected the old city. However, as the civil works were incomplete and the administration non functional, they shifted the capital to Panaji. In 1878 when the railway line from Marmagoa to Londa was being planned, there was another move to capital from Panaji to Marmagoa. The planned was failed. In 1886 the energetic Governor FJ.Ferreira Do Amaral made a bid to develop the area on the eastern side of the fort of Marmagoa up to Vaddem. He named it VASCO DA GAMA, in honour of the great discover of the sea route to India. On 27 July 1917 the taluka of Marmagoa was created and Vasco Da Gama was named its capital city. The city grew around the fort and the port at the Harbour. There was a club house, tree shaded streets and a Municipal Park which still exist. The Railway Line which passes from the port to Londa gave great impetus to development of the city.
Population : 34,000 (1991).
Other major cities of Goa are Margoa and Mapusa.
