¤ About Panjim
PanjimThe picturesque town of Panjim or Panaji is located on the southern banks of the Mandovi river. The town of Panjim is the state capital of Goa and is built around a church facing a prominent square. The town is studded with some exquisite Portugues Baroque style buildings and bewitching old villas. One can find some fantastic government buildings along the riverside thoroughfare. The Passport Office here was once the palace of Adil Shah, the Sultan of Bijapur. The cobbled alleys of the town are lined with stupefying old taverns and cafes. Meeting local people in these alleys is a pleasing experience. The catholic churches and the enchanting neoclassical houses give rise to a fantastic backdrop as you trudge around the town.
