Famous Shigmo Parade in Panjim, Goa

Tripoto

The famous Shigmotsav festival is like a procession and is famously called Goa’s Hindu carnival. A festival to welcome spring and say bye to winters, it is celebrated over a fortnight from the 9th moon day to full moon day in March (invariably), which is known as Phalguna as per the lunar calendar, the last month for the Hindus. Apart from the seasons, the famous shigmotsav festival is also like a homecoming for the warriors who had left their homes after Dussehra, in service of the land.
