Panaji is the capital of Goa. Living in this city can be quite expensive compared to other cities in Goa. There are many monuments and beaches in and around the city for people to visit and have a good time. The market area in the heart of the city has many shopping centers and restaurants.

Panaji is the capital of Goa and has a heritage precinct and Latin quarter, in addition to playing host to the annual Film Festival of India (IFFI). It is also close to two well known beaches is Miramar and dona Paula. Several cinemas are also located there.

It is a very wet and humid place. Summer temperatures can go up to 34 degree Celsius and proximity to sea also makes it a humid city. Monsoons are quite enjoyable and bring the much needed relief from the heat. The city still retains its Portuguese past and has many monuments of that era. The most prominent is the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church (Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Imaculada Conceição), built in 1541 by the Portuguese, this church sits on a hill overlooking the city of Panaji. If you are a “Beach” person and love those evening strolls on the beach, the city is home to the famous Miramar Beach. The city has something for everyone if you are religiously inclined, or a party buffs, the city never disappoints.

It is a great vacation place. There are lot many activities and places. There are beaches where various water sports take place. One can even take a boat ride and on the way watch dolphins too. There are churches and monuments from the ancient times. It’s a tourist hubspot.
