Must Visit Old Goa
The name Old Goa was first used in the 1960s in the address of the Konkani monthly magazine, dedicated to spread the devotion of the Sacred Heart, Dor Mhoineachi Rotti which was shifted to the Basilica of Bom Jesus in 1964. Postal letters were returned to the sender, as the name "Old Goa" was unknown then, according to then and long-time editor of the monthly, the great Goan historian late Padre Moreno de Souza, SJ. The place is known as Saibachem Goem (referring to St. Francis Xavier as Saib i.e. Master), Pornnem Goem, Adlem Goem or just Goem in Konkani.The remains of the city are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Old Goa is approximately 10 kilometres east of the state capital Panjim.

Goa in Monsoon
Goa was at its serene best during our visit this monsoon. We had a tour of South Goa and covered the temples- Mangeshi and Shantadurga, the churches and museum,Dona Paula and Miramar & Colva beaches. We also visited a small wax museum near the Church, had a decent collection of Indian and foreign personalities. Fort Agouda is surely worth visiting...
