Lairai Zatra
11th April

One of Goa’s most popular festivals, Lairai Zatra (zatra is a Konkani word for Hindu pilgrimage festivals) is celebrated in honour of Goddess Lairai. The fire walking by Dhond at the Shirgao Temple, during the zatra is a sight you must not miss. An all-night long Dhond dance around a bonfire ends in devotees walking across hot coals to prove their faith.
