Under the rich green of palm trees, and the paddy fields as the backdrop, the Art Chamber is a tribute to the one-of-a-kind Goan culture, with numerous religions and groups living in harmony with practically no grinding by any stretch of the imagination.

It was at first a home, however, due to the irregular and creative design it was later turned into the home of craftsmanship display – the Art Chamber, Galeria de BelasArtes.

Madgaon

Madgaon

Madgaon

Margao (the Portugese spelling) is the second largest city in the Indian state of Goa, located 33 km from the state capital, Panaji. Goa's cultural and commercial capital, this South Goa city is also the second-largest (after Vasco da Gama) by population, but arguably the busiest. Being the administrative headquarters of South Goa might create a misleading picture. Margao too is close to the central coast. The long white-sand beach stretch was rated by an early-1970s UNDP study as potentially one of the ten best beaches in the world.
