The Secretariat Travel

The Secretariat in Panaji, located along the riverside is one of the most striking monuments in Goa. Considered to be one of the Goa’s oldest buildings, the Secretariat houses Goa’s state legislative assembly.

Originally, a palace of the Muslim ruler Adil Shah of Bijapur the monument was converted into viceroy’s official residence in 1759 by the Portuguese. Numerous attempts at renovation and repair have slowly converted an overtly Islamic structure into a giant colonial building, which boasts of a sloping tiled roofs and iron pillars.

Being a high profile building heavy security cordon is guarding the building everyday however, visitors are permitted to enter and check out the exquisite carvings and a strange amalgamation of cultural architectures.
