South India 2008
Photos by Adam Jones
These photos were taken during two-and-a-half months in South India
(states of Karnataka, Goa, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala) from June to August 2008.
Gallery 13: Panaji (Goa)
We now swing due west from Hampi to the Arabian Sea at Goa, established by the Portuguese
and held by them for 450 years, until the Indians reconquered it in 1961. This gallery is from Goa's main town,
Panaji (which means "place that does not flood"). I liked it a lot: more easygoing than any sizable town I've
seen so far in India, and combining plenty of old Portuguese flavour with a fresh contemporary feel.
This photo and the next: memorable faces on a crowded second-class train to Goa.
Remainder of the gallery: architecture and streetscapes in Panaji, mostly in Fontainhas,
the town's most historic district.
The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception,
Panaji's best-known landmark.
View over downtown Panaji from Altinho hill.
