Vagator Beach: Goa, India

Goa, a former Portuguese colony, is the smallest state in India and synonymous with tourism. The state of Goa  is famous for its beautiful beaches, churches and temples and its primary industry is tourism.

Vagator beach is located in North Goa. The entire beach is lined with tall palm trees. Vagator Beach has dramatic red cliffs looking down on the shore and two fresh water springs within a stone's throw of the sea.

“Born in a class considered low and outcast. Dr. Ambedkar fought untiringly for the downtrodden. The boy who suffered bitter humiliation became the first Minister for Law in free India, and shaped the country’s Constitution. A determined fighter, a deep scholar, human to the tips of his fingers.”
