The Raj Bhavan palace in Goa now has a cool new feature!

The Raj Bhavan in Goa is a sight to behold. It is a palace where Indian governors live. It is inside a large 88 acres estate. From 2019, it was open to being toured by those who booked the Raj Bhavan tours. The building is a hundred and fifty four meters above sea level.

There are notable landmarks here such as ‘The Estate Beach’, ‘The Canon Point’, ‘Our Lady of the Cape Church’, ‘Grotto’, ‘The Estate’, and ‘The Jetty’. The church was probably built in the 17th century. Now there is a new addition – a bonsai garden!

After the Vamanavriksha Kala garden was set up, the Raj Bhavan now has 72 bonsai varieties. Governor P S Sreedharan Pillai wants to become a bonsai exporter. He said that China and Japan are considered to be the bonsai inventors, but he disagrees and declared that India started growing miniature trees first. The governor further revealed that Vamanavriksha Kala was very important in Indian traditions and it started 5000 years back.

Additionally, a ‘gaushala’ has started at the Raj Bhavan to house a Goan cow breed called ‘shwetakapila’ which gives highly nutritious milk.
