Goa has a rich
cultural history and being a part of India itself means having
a kaleidoscope of festivals. This small sate of India was
under the Portugal rule, Mughal rule and also has a tradition
of its own. This has resulted in a unique cultural
amalgamation, which is evident from the festivals it
celebrates. People in Goa are extremely tolerant of different
religions and respect different religious faiths. Goa
celebrates not only Hindu, Muslim and Christian festivals, but
also festivals that are exclusive to Goa. Some of these
festivals are typical of Goa and can be as Goan festivals.
