True to the norms of the Garden of Eden, Goa is the oriental paradise on earth. Splendid beaches and a climate that is apt for a holiday or a vacation throughout the year mark the features of Goa. Blue seas, clear rivers, white glistening sand, rows of palm and coconut trees, wooded hills and churches and temples that give a sense of the Portuguese invasion, all these lie at the core of Goa to give a picturesque dimension to the state. The Carnival and other festivals celebrated in all its pomp and splendour add to the magnificence of the state.
A true mirror to the secularism of the nation, Goa has people of all sects and tribes living in complete harmony with each other. The people are Hindus, Muslims, Christians and so on. Because of its favourable climate, Goa is the home of all types of plantation making it a potential support to the agricultural background of the country.
