FACES OF GOA: APRIL'15 - Part 1

FLOWER VENDORS AT PANJIM BUS STAND

Religion plays an important role in the life of ordinary Goan irrespective of the faith he/she follows. As such, offerings to Gods and deities in the form of garlands is very common. One can easily spot flower vendors outside temples and churches with colorful garlands made of flowers that are grown in the vicinity.

The below pictures were taken at the small market inside the KTC Bus Stand in Panjim. The flowers that are generally sold here are brought from places like Belgaum and Bangalore and then are strung into garlands. In the interiors though, you will find garlands made up of local flowers like hibiscus and white jasmines which are far more prettier and have a local feel to it.
