Calangute ,Goa


History Of Calangute

Calangute became popular due to its invasion by the Portuguese. Since, then the place was called Calangute from its original name Kolongutt, which it was referred as before the invasion. The literal meaning of the name links to the word "Cal" which refers to the Hindu Goddess, Kali. Kali was a Hindu Deity that was worshipped by fisher-men residing in here, thus the name appears significant.

There are many stories that link to the tale that how Calangute got its actual name. Another one is the link to the word "Klayan Gutti' which refers to a village of art. Another possibility is its origin from Konvallo Ghott that signifies a coconut that has strong pith. As coconut possess a strong pith or marrow with a soft, edible substance in the heart, so the same again appears credible.
