The public transport is pretty good, though not very comfortable, but if you have good walking shoes, you can cover large areas of Goa’s capital city Panaji on foot. It’s a picturesque city, worth exploring.
You can walk along the Miramar-Caranzalem road or step on to the beach and walk up to Donapaula. Check out the Goa Science Museum (three minutes’ walk from the Miramar Residency) which is fascinating for all ages. Or you can catch a bus to the Donapaula jetty and experience the spectacular vista of the Mormugao Harbour with the great cargo vessels neatly arranged on the horizon. The Governor’s residence Cabo Raj Bhavan is worth seeing if you apply for permission. The British cemetery lies quietly outside the Raj Bhavan walls. Talking of cemeteries, the St Inez cemetery is a thing of great beauty and tranquility, with sculptures almost a hundred years old, stately tribute to fallen soldiers.
The Panjim Market is a very colourful and interesting place with Goan fisherwomen sitting solidly like royalty while humble subjects timorously bargain for fish which is an essential in every self-respecting Goan’s diet.
The Old Goa Medical College which has now been restored and changed into the IFFI head office is another must-see. A walk along the boulevard takes you to Kala Academy a structure of great beauty, designed by the world famous Mumbai based architect of Goan origin, Charles Correa. Kala Academy is generally a hive of cultural activity offering music, drama and art. The grounds are also beautiful and if one moves towards the river the comfortable steel benches allow you to soak in a soul-stirring sunset.
Further down the road is the Adil Shah Palace which used to house the Goa Assembly. Now there are plans to turn it into a cultural centre. Turn into the city and the Church of the Immaculate Conception dominates the square, the road to the right takes you up Altinho with some beautiful old mansions, including the official residence of the Chief Minister of the state. TheHigh Court on Altinho is another beautiful structure steeped in history. From the High Court one can take the stepped street(stepped streets are unique to Panjim city) down to Fontainhas the Latin quarter of Panjim. Neat houses line neat roads all held together by the pretty St Sebastian Chapel which houses the crucifix from the Hall of the Inquisition. The crucifix is special since it is a rare representation of Jesus Christ with his eyes wide open.
The Kadamba bus terminus lies just off the commercial centre at Patto Plaza. Here buses connect you all over the state and outside the state too.
The city centre has interesting shopping offering anything from sports goods, to apparel, to accessories, to cashewnuts, feni, wines, cars, books, you want it, it’s all there in Panjim, all you have to do is ask anyone for directions.
