About Goa

Goa is India's smallest state by area and city in itself is the fourth smallest by population. It is located in region known as the Konkan. The Indian epic Mahabharata refers to the area now known as Goa as Goparashtra or Govarashtra, which means `a nation of cowherds’. Goa was taken by Portuguese in 1510, thus beginning four centuries of its influence on this region. They came looking for spices and stayed to make Goa the center of their eastern empire. The territory is tucked away between the hills of western ghats and the Arabia Sea. It was liberated in 1961 from Portuguese government by then Prime Minister of India Pandit Nehru. Since its absorption into Indian Union, there have been many changes. But one can still see evidence of 400-odd years of Portuguese rule in peaceful towns with their Iberian-style villas, people’s dress, language, religion and cuisine and in their music. The city is divided into district North and South Goa. Goa is one of India's most popular holiday destinations, with its idyllic beaches, ancient temples, lush paddy fields, coconut plantations and villages with pretty white washed churches and grand mansions.

Reis Magos Forts

s The fort at Reis Magos was built in 1551 by Don Alfonso de Noronha, the fifth viceroy, as a second line of defence after the forts at Aguada and Cabo. Reis Magos is a village located on the northern bank of the Mandovi River in Bardez, Goa, opposite to the capital city of Panjim. The fort before housed a prison, which was moved to Mormugao in 1996. This Fort is surrounded by sturdy laterite walls studded with typically Portuguese turrets which were erected in 1551 to protect the narrowest point at the mouth of the Mandovi estuary. It was enlarged subsequently on different occasions and finally re-erected in 1707.
