Panjim

Located along the banks of River Mandovi, Panjim alias 'Panaji' is the capital of Goa. Once a nondescript fishing village, Panjim started to gain prominence during the second half of the 18th century when the erstwhile power center of Old Goa gradually faded into oblivion. On March 22, 1843 Panjim was conferred the status of a city and was rechristened Nova-Goa (New Goa).

As the Portuguese strengthened their hold over Goa, Panjim developed into a vibrant city bustling with commercial and tourism activities. The Christian rulers built some of Goa's most majestic churches here. The quaint villas and pretty houses with red roof tiles present an enchanting spectacle in Panaji. Most of these buildings bear the hallmark of Portuguese architecture.
