Goa is a true kaleidoscope of natural, cultural and artistic heritage. Heritage being the positive legacy of history presents itself as the very face of this mosaic we call Goa. This presentation highlighted those extraordinary and charming features of Goan heritage from the gushing Dudhsagar in the Sanguem taluka to the fascinating phenomenon of the budbudyanchi talli at Netravallim, Jain heritage of Kudnem, the Arch of the Viceroys at Old Goa etc. It was a beautiful journey of history through heritage. This presentation included vivid and well captured visuals.
