Panjim ( Goa ) & Amba Ghat

 

 

Few years back, I was stationed at Goa. Thanks to my friends there, I was fortunate to see the beautiful places in Goa, which are never visited by tourists. Just two weeks back, I was again in Goa for few hours, and I visited some of my favorite spots ( I wish, I could spend some more time there. )

Then from there, I went to some places like Ratnagiri, Deorukh, Malkapur & Kolhapur.

On my journey from Deorukh to Malkapur, I spend a night at Amba Ghat.  Though I have  travelled thru this Ghat many times, but this was the first time, I actually spent some time there. ( This ghat is on Kolhapur Ratnagiri highway and there are many resorts there. It is worth spending few days  there. )

So here are some photographs, I clicked at these two places.

  1. There is rather was a garden at Patto in Panjim. I used to spend quiet some time there.

2 Now it Panaji and Amba Ghat (1)

 

2 ) Now it is deserted and  nobody goes there it seems..

9) In Patto, there is a food joint run by Mrs. Soyara. She  has mouth watering dishes and I used visit that place, at least two times a day. On the day, I was there, it was closed, due to Sunday..

10) In front of Panjim Bust stand, there is another garden and rarely I have seen anybody inside it. I spotted some lovely Champak flowers there.

17) The Mandovi River may look calm, but it is  not safe to swim here..

  1. माणकुर आंबा मिळाला…. महत् भाग्य!माणकुर आंबा, वालीचे सुकलेले दाणे (अळसांदे किंवा फजाँव नव्हे), करपलेल्या गुळाच्या पाकातळे जाड शेवाचे लाडू … फारच दुर्मिळ झाले आहेत. दरवर्षी गावाला गेलो की वालीचे दाणे शोधतो. अजुन काही मिळाले नाही.
