The village of Chandor forms an important chapter in Goa’s history.
Earlier, called Chandrapura, it served as the capital during the Bhoja period
(3rd century AD to 6th century) as well as later during the reign of the
Kadambas (10th to 14th century CE). Today, an ancient fort and a Nandi bull
sculpture stand testament to the glory of the past. Situated about 10 km
inland, the ancient capital, apart from its historical significance, boasts of
some of the finest Indo-Portuguese homes.
