Much of the real Goa is in its interiors, both inside buildings and within the coastal zone. Legends from Hindu mythology credit Lord Parshuram, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu with the creation of Goa. Over the centuries various dynasties have ruled Goa. Rashtrakutas, Kadambas, Silah, Chalukyas, Bahamani Muslims and most famously the Portuguese have been rulers of Goa.

Goa was liberated by the Indian Army from Portuguese colonization on December 19, 1961 and became a Union territory, along with the enclaves of Daman and Diu. On May 30, 1987 Goa was conferred statehood and became the 25th state of the Republic of travel in India.

Having been the meeting point of races, religions and cultures of East and West during the centuries, Goa has a colorful lifestyle very different and distinctive from the rest of India. The majority of the population is Hindu and Catholic while Muslims and other religion are with minority.

All communities have mutual respect for others and their secular outlook has given Goa a long and unbroken tradition of religious harmony. The warm and tolerant nature of the Goans allows them to celebrate and enjoy the festivals of various religions such as Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali, Christmas, Easter and the Id with equal enthusiasm.
