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 received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
