Goa is a coastal state situated on the Western Ghats famous for its beautiful beaches, great seafood, amazing nightlife, and thrilling watersports and is divided into two districts – North Goa and South Goa. North Goa is famous for its lively beaches like Calangute, Baga, Candolim, Anjuna, Church of Mae De Deus, Brihadeshwara Temple and scenic villages. Bardez is a sub district of North Goa with many villages and towns in it.
