Essentially a miniature Goan village, Ancestral Goa is the culmination of the dream and singular efforts of Goan artist, Maendra J. Alvares, who wanted to create a project that, would preserve the heritage of the land and contribute to Goan tourism. A kaleidoscope of Goan rural life, Ancestral Goa depicts the day to day activities of a typical Goan village and also hosts a number of art galleries and artifact centers.
