Goa is very different from India as a whole. Portuguese rule is very affected the life of Old Goa. Many interesting buildings of the Portuguese time. Definitely need to visit.

The Old Goa complex is quite mesmerising, whether it is Basilica of Bom Jesuse, Muesum, or church of St. Francis of Assissi or church of lady of Mount Mary. All are beautful. The place is well maintained and neat and clean. Visit of this place will take you in history
