Goa - The Name - In the later Vedic period (c.1000-500 BC) when the Hindu epic "Mahabharata" was written, Goa has been referred to with the Sanskrit name "Gomantak", a word with many meanings , signifying mostly a fertile land; but however, it is the Portuguese who gave Goa its name. Before they arrived on the scene, Goa, or Gove or Gowapura, was the name only of the port town near the mouth of the Mandovi River. This was also the same site on which the Portuguese later built their capital, today's Old Goa.

The Govenrment of INdia has alloted only one Smart City for Goa State.


Situated between Karnataka and Maharashtra, Goa is bounded on the north by the Terekhol river, surrounded on the south and east by Karnataka while on the west is the Arabian sea. Its ancient name was Gomantaka or Gomanchala. Goa with its long beaches along the Arabian sea is a principal tourist resort. Goa has a hilly terrain especially on its eastern side where lies the southern ends of the Sahyadri range. These mountains after skirting a considerable portion of the northern, eastern and southern boundaries branch off westwards across the territory with many spurs and ridges The most picturesque region is located in the lower basin of the Mandovi and Zuari rivers which join to form a bay. There are about half a dozen islets between the estuaries of these rivers
