Panjim Baba tour and Travels Jammu J& kGoa is divided into two districts: North and South Goa. North Goa has the state capital, Panaji, the former capital of Old Goa, with its interesting churches and cathedrals and a string of beaches. Margao is the main town in South Goa and is reminiscent of the Portuguese colonial past.

Panaji is one of India's smallest state capitals. People pass through Panaji on their way to Old Goa or to the beaches, but it is a town worth visiting.
Prime Attractions of Panjim
Dona Paula : At the place where two of Goa's famous rivers meet the Arabian Sea is the secluded bay of Dona Paula with a fine view of the Marmagao Harbour.

The Chapel Of Our Lady Of The Mount : About 2-km on the main road towards Ponda, a Kuchcha road branches off to a place where a cross is fixed. The road leads to a hill on which, commanding a picturesque view, is the Chapel of Our Lady of the Mount .

Convent and Church of St Francis Assisi : This old church has carved woodwork and old murals depicting the file of St Francis. The floor is made of gravestones carved with the coat of arms of families going back to the 16th century. Open from 9 am to 12.30 pm & 3 pm to 6.30 pm. The archaeological museum is open Saturday to Thursday , 10 am to 5 pm.

Basilica of Bom Jesus : This contains the tomb and mortal remains of St Francis Xavier who was on a mission to spread Christianity in the Portuguese colonies of the East. The Professed House is next to the basilica and is a two-storeyed laterite building covered with lime plaster. Open from 9 am to 12.30 pm & 3 pm to 6.30 pm.

Goa State Museum
This is near the bus stand in Panaji. (Open from 9 am to 1.15 pm and 2 to 5.30 pm, Mondays to Fridays). It has a collection of Christian art and Hindu and Jain sculpture and Indian paintings of different styles.

Aguada Fort : A spring within the fort provided water supply to the ships that called there, giving it the name "Aguada" (meaning 'water' in Portuguese). On the northern side, it provides a harbour for local shipping. The fort, at present, houses the central jail. A 19th century built lighthouse is situated inside the fortress.

Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary : This is the smallest of Goa's sanctuaries, and is the easiest to reach. Bookings should be made in advance at the office of the Department of Forestry in Panaji.

The Secretariat : This has an interesting history. It was originally a palace of the Adil Shahi dynasty of Bijapur.

Rachol Seminary and Church : This is worth visiting for the Museum of Christian Art which has a rare collection of textiles, silver and articles once used in the churches of Old Goa. (Open Tuesday to Sunday 9.30 am to 12.30 am & 2.30 pm to 5 pm.)

Shri Shantadurga Temple This temple, dedicated to the goddess of peace, has a pagoda-like structure and a roof made of long slabs of stone. The annual carnival held here is well worth attending to see the blend of Christian and Hindu cultures.

Church Square The leafy rectangular park opposite the Indian Government Tourist Office, known as Church Square or the municipal garden, forms the heart of Panjim. Presiding over its east side is the town's most distinctive and photogenic landmark, the toothpaste white baroque fašade of the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Flanked by rows of slender palm trees, at the head of a criss-crossing laterite walkway, the church was built in 1541 for the benefit of sailors arriving here from Lisbon. The weary mariners would stagger up from the quay to give thanks for their safe passage before proceeding to the capital at Old Goa - the original home of the enormous bell that hangs from its central gable.
