The Secretariat : Goa Directory


Oldest Building Of Panaji

Located along the riverside in Panaji, is one of the most striking monuments in Goa - The Secretariat. This is believed to be one of the oldest buildings in the state.

In the ancient days The Secretariat was the palace of the Muslim ruler Adil Shah of Bijapur. Then later the monument was converted into viceroy's official residence in 1759 by the Portuguese. But today it houses Goa’s state legislative assembly.

Constant renovations and repair of The Secretariat from time to time has converted an overtly Islamic structure into a giant colonial building, which boasts of a sloping tiled roofs and iron pillars. Being a high profile building today heavy security cordon is guarding the building everyday however, visitors are permitted to enter and check out the exquisite carvings.
