Goa is often referred to as the 'Pearl of the Orient' and is a 'tourist's paradise'. Legends have it that Lord Parshuram - an incarnation of the Lord Vishnu - created Goa. Over the ages it has been ruled by several successive kingdoms - the Rashtrakutas, Kadambas, Silaharas, Chalukyas, Bahamani Muslims etc. However, Goa's most famous rulers have been the Portuguese.
