Chandor, Chandor

India's insider take:

A few miles east of Margao lies the small, sleepy village of Chandor, once the site of Chandrapur (capital of the ancient state of Govarashtra), the most spectacular city on the Konkani coast. Today, Chandor is worth a visit to see the Braganza House, probably the grandest colonial mansion in Goa. Dominating the dusty village square, the structure, built in the 16th century by the wealthy Braganza family for their two sons, has a huge two-story facade, with 28 windows flanking its entrance.
