India officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second most populous country, and the most populous liberal democracy in the world. India is a union of twenty-eight states and seven federally-governed union territories. New Delhi is the capital of India.
Mapusa is a town in North Goa, India. It is situated 13 kilometers north of the capital Panaji. The town is the headquarters of Bardez taluka. It is located on the main highway, linking Mumbai to Trivandrum. Under Portuguese rule, the town's name was spelt Mapuca. According to the 2001 census, population was 40,122.
Mapusa is close to one of the main centres of Goa's tourism industry, with its proximity to the beaches in north Goa. Mapusa's proximity to many beaches in the north makes it a suitable base during the tourist season. Because it is a mainly commercial town with a large resident population, Mapusa has only a limited number of hotels and accommodation.
Mapusa comes alive on Friday, the traditional market day. People from surrounding villages and towns come to Mapusa to sell their wares. This fair has a lot of local flavour and specializes in agricultural produce, vegetables, locally-grown fruit, spices, clothes and even plants.
Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Mapusa enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
