Description

Introduction

Goa is about a way of life. And Goans have a nice sounding word for it: susegad. Translated loosely, it means, 'just chill.' If you're looking for a laidback beach holiday, this tiny emerald on the west coast of India is your dream place in the sun.

Goa has lured people from across the globe for centuries. Even before the arrival of the Portuguese in the early 16th century, it was a coveted trading post. Today, its stunning coastline, quaint towns and charming villages, and its unique blend of Eastern and Western cultures have made it the tourism capital of India, drawing an estimated 2.5 million visitors each year.

Take a walk on the golden sands, enjoy a drink under the swaying palms, amble along the streets, try out exotic cuisine from around the globe, and visit the historic forts and ancient churches of this former Portuguese colony. Goa is your destination for all seasons – with exciting nightlife thrown in!.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
Намаскар! Честно говоря, сомневался. Но сегодня получил свой заказ. Порадовала упаковка, упаковано всё очень тщательно и аккуратно. Большое спасибо, как раз подарок к Новому Году! Namaskar! Frankly, I doubted. But today received my order. We were pleased with the packaging. Everything is packed carefully and accurately. Thank you very much, just a gift for the New Year!
Ruslan, Russia.
