Goa India Tour LiveIndia from Rajesh Chopra

The scenic capital of Goa, Panaji is located along the river Mandovi. 
Tiers of white washed red tile - roofed buildings rising up the hillside give it a 
Mediterranean flavour. Panaji is noted for its fine buildings. Once the Governor's residence, 
the present Government Secretariat is located along the river and was 
built at the site of the palace of Adil Shah, the ruler of Bijapur. 
The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception dominates the city square and its steps 
zig zag up the hill. The old Latin quarter of Fontainahas has immense old world charm. 
Its little lanes and stairways going up the hill are lined with quaint street houses with wrought iron 
balconies. The little Chapel of San Sebastian blends into these surroundings. 
The Kala Academy, the focus of all cultural activities in Goa, is a beautifully designed
modern complex along the river and close by is the Miramar beach. 
Margao to the south of Panaji is a major commercial centre. It also has some beautiful 
old houses and churches. The towns of Vasco Da Gama and the Mormugao 
port are close by. Mapusa is another town with great charm that 
comes alive each Friday when a local market springs up.

Goa with its marvellous, unspoilt expanses of palm fringed beaches, 
warmed by the sun and the local hospitality, relaxed lifestyles enlivened by 
the love of music and dance and tantalising cuisine, makes a heady mixture too 
good to resist. More than 450 years of Portuguese rule preceded by Hindu and 
Muslim supremacy have made "Sunny Goa" an exciting amalgam of cultures. 
Imposing churches, forts perched on high promontories, delightful old mansions 
and villas and picturesque whitewashed villages set amidst velvety 
paddy fields are all a part of this exciting heritage.

Usually the climatic conditions of Goa are temperate, except during the monsoon, 
which lasts from June to September. Thanks to the coastal Konkan region and the 
backdrop of Western Ghats, weather of Goa is pleasant and sunny. 
There are no extremes in temperature and no clear demarcations 
from one season to the other except for the monsoon. 

The average temperature varies between 25°C - 30°C (67.96F - 81.56F Approx). 
The average rainfall is approximately 325cms, the average daily hours of 
sunshine is nine to ten hours in summer and three to five hours during the monsoon.
The main feature of the Goan climate is the monsoon, which occurs between 
June and the end of September. Goa is in the path of the southwest monsoon, 
thereby experiencing a dry period lasting six to eight months of the year, 
followed by the annual rainfall, which occurs over the remaining four months. 
During the two months preceding the onset of the monsoon the humidity
increases dramatically, and the normally clear skies become hazy and then cloudy.
During the monsoon, 250cm to 300cm of rain is normal, although in the Western
Ghats the downpour is considerably high than on the coast. 

Once the monsoon has run its course the skies clear and the weather becomes 
pleasant. For four to five months from October through February the climate
is near perfect-cloudless blue skies, warm but not oppressively hot days, 
and calm seas. By mid-March the humidity starts to rise as the monsoon begins to approach again
