Located in the quaint village, Benaulim (the village of arrows) in South Goa, Goa Chitra is spread across 1.17 lakhs square meters and beyond. It is a conglomerate of museums that additionally features an art gallery, organic shop, a café & accommodation, set against the backdrop of an organic farm.
Goa Chitra Museum is not just a conglomerate of museums or an organization. It is a window to peer through, to find ourselves. A mirror that reflects the very nature and purpose of our existence. It is a stage for creative pursuits, a cultural institution, and a classroom for academic excellence. It is a playground for children and heritage hub for youngsters. It is a throwback to what we have forgotten. It is an album that makes you nostalgic.
His fascination with the age-old traditions and tools, and the realization that it would one day be irretrievably lost has culminated into this 30-year labour of love that houses over 40,000 priceless cultural artifacts he has personally collected.
