Morjim Beach Resort pictures
Morjim is a beautiful village located in the Pernem district in North Goa. This rich and diverse place can hardly leave anyone unfazed and indifferent. It combines the developing Goa beach resort and traditional local fishing village. In the south the Morjim resort is washed by the fresh waters of the River Chapora, while in the west it is washed by the salt waters of the Arabian Sea. The picturesque fishing boats, spacious beach, turtle nests, colonies of sea birds, interesting monuments and artifacts, the meeting of different religions and cultures put together the fascinating landscape of Morjim.
The village has got its name from the Goddess Morjai, which, according to the legend, came here on a peacock and was accompanied by her brother – the God Shri Khetoba. That’s why this Goodness is a symbol of the main Hindu temple in Morjim – the Shri Morjai Temple. The temple is an elegant architectural creation, decorated in the disappearing art style of "Kawi". One interesting fact: the main festival of the temple – the Kalas Utsav Fest, is celebrated every three, five, seven and nine years, and lasts during the whole month. In the last days of this festival people not only from the whole Goa, but also from the neighboring states of India are coming to Morjim Village for celebration.
Morjim has several more Hindu temples, including the dilapidated Sateri Temple, where you can see interesting graffito in the same "Kawi" art style.
The night Morjim also offers its guests the contrasting opportunities. Depending on your mood you can spend your evening having a quiet dinner at the sunset or having some fun in a noisy restaurant with the attractive show-program.
