Shisha Ranni

Event Date: March

Shisha Ranni is a traditional festival deeply rooted in Goan culture in Canacona. During this ritual, rice is cooked atop the heads of three Gades, which are humanoid representations of divinity on earth. Interestingly, the term ‘Ranni’ directly translates to ‘stove,’ emphasizing the central element of this ceremony.
In a remarkable display of devotion, three villagers from Canacona taluka’s Gaondongorim voluntarily offer their heads as makeshift stoves for cooking rice over a wood fire.
From the colorful extravaganza of Shigmo to the quaint charm of village festivals, Goa offers a diverse array of cultural experiences for visitors to explore. Whether you’re captivated by the pulsating beats of traditional music or tempted by the tantalizing flavors of Goan cuisine, these unique festivals promise to enchant and delight at every turn.
