About Panaji

 

The tiny city of Panaji is the capital city of the tiny state of Goa. It really is a truly charming city with a small river flowing around one side of the city. Of course being an Indian city it does have some aspects that come with all highly over populated centres in India including rubbish everywhere, massive amounts of beggars, festoons of seemingly wild cows and endless amounts of touts and scams. Funnily enough Panaji roughly translates as, “Land that never floods”. With red-roofed houses built in Latin style, modern - 21st century houses and complexes, well laid and mainained gardens, statues and avenues lined with Gulmohar, Acassia and other trees all means that Panji is quite different to all the other cities in India. The church on the main square, the Baroque architecture, pretty villas, cobbled streets and interesting buildings give Panaji that ambient Portuguese atmosphere while maintaining it's position as capital of the countries wealthiest state.
