Situated on the west coast of India, with the Arabian Sea for its coastline, I wonder how many people within India and also the others travelling to this amazing vacation destination called Goa, knows that it is the smallest state in India. Occupying about 0.11% of the total land of the country which is around 3,702 square kilometres, Goa has Karnataka in the south & east and Maharashtra to the north as it’s neighbouring states.
Many popular facts about this lively and most sought after holiday hotspot are its breezy beaches, bewitching sunsets, lip-smacking local cuisine not forgetting the high spirit it ignites with its heritage drink feni and the happening nightlife. Magnificently elegant churches of Portugal era, museum, many a forts, river cruises, wildlife sanctuaries, adventure sports, long drives on the winding roads, visit to the palatial heritage bungalows, some serene moments in the colourful temples, bustling market visits, festivals and carnivals are just a few other features of this flamboyant place which contributes towards a wholesome experience of fun, excitement as well as leisure holidaying.
A very different and unique side of Goa is the less reconnoitred places or monuments that are hidden or just remain unknown to ‘only the beach’ seeking travellers to Goa. Goan Rhapsody is that ecstatic feeling and memoir of one such peregrination.
