Goa is one of the most beautiful states in India. It is the land of serene beaches and picturesque landscape but the true beauty of Goa lies in the various other aspects, like temples churches, villages, architectures. The traditions and cultures of Goa are unique.
It’s been almost 3 years consecutively I have been visiting this place and every time as I stepped on the land of Curdi ‘The vibes are weird’ the village is calm yet disturbing.
Kurdi or Curdi is a village in Sanguem taluka of Goa. The village was submerged in the 1980s by the reservoir of the Salaulim Dam, A conceptualized dream project of Goa’s first Chief Minister Dayanand Bandodkar, the Selaulim dam. Most of the villagers were into agriculture and farming. The government compensated the families with agricultural land and land for housing purpose with 10,000 square metres, with all plans in place, the people of Curdi began moving out by 1971, making way for the construction of the dam.
