History

We must go 20,000 to 30,000 years back to know the history of Goa. Ten thousand years back archeologists found the rock art engravings in many places such as Kazur, Mauxim and the Mandovi-Zuari basin. This breakthrough threw light on Goa's history. The Sumerians populated and lived in Goa around 2200 BC and later it was occupied by Indo-Aryan citizenry and the Dravidians from the Deccan.

Goa was under the governance of Delhi Sultan in 1312. But the emperor’s hold on the region was very sapless. By 1370 they were asked to give up Goa to Emperor Harihara I of the Vijayanagara Imperium. The sovereigns of the Vijayanagara held on to the dominion till it was captured by the Bahmani sultans of Gulbarga in 1469. Later on, this leadership collapsed and the area went into the custody of the Adil Shahis of Bijapur. They set up the place as their adjuvant capital under the Portuguese as Velha Goa.
