Muslim Festivals

Goa does not quite have a sizeable Muslim population and it ranks after Hindus and Christians. Though there are not many Muslim festivals in Goa, the main ones are celebrated with much joy and enthusiasm. The two main Muslim festivals that are celebrated in Goa are Id-ul-Fitr and Id-ul-Zuha.

Eid is celebrated with extreme enthusiasm in Goa as it is also the 'Festival of Fast-Breaking'. After a rigorous fast in Ramzan, Eid is definitely a welcome occasion. Great rush can be seen in markets a days before the festival as people do a lot of shopping for gifts, clothes and sweetmeats. The Muslim colonies are beautifully decorated with streamers and elaborate feasts are prepared in Muslim households.

The capital of Bardez Taluka, on the national highway, is the cross roads of the network of highways covering whole of Northern Goa. Weekly fair on Friday, is held at the modem streamlined market, attended by large crowds.
