Panaji Travel Guide

Panaji or Panjim as it was earlier called, is the capital of the small but vibrant state of Goa. Panaji is a tiny city that packs in a large punch. The church on the main square, the Baroque architecture, pretty villas, cobbled streets and interesting buildings give Panaji a distinctly Portuguese ambience.

The pretty town of Panaji lies along the left bank of the Mandovi River - piled up against terraced hills, a jumble of concrete buildings with whimsical balconies and red-tiled roofs, bleached clean churches and a riverside promenade that is just right for an evening stroll. The Old Portuguese quarter of Fontainhas, a charming section of Panaji with its narrow cobbled streets, quaint taverns, tiny pubs and bars, are a nostalgic kickback to the days of yore.

Panaji is known for its idyllic beauty and rich tradition and culture. A must visit by all--- Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church on the main square, Menezes Braganza Institute, Kala Academy cultural centre, Old City and Miramar Beach where so many Bollywood (Hindi) films have been shot.
