Chorao Island



Chorao is an island along the river Mandovi near Panaji, Goa, India. It is believed that the island emerged from the diamonds that were thrown away by Yashoda, the mother of Lord Krishna.
The island was said to be a place of learning and once had a University of Sanskrit. According to the Hindu deities, the island had ancient temples of Ganesh, Ravalnath, Bhaukadevi, Mallinath, Bhagwati, Devki, Santa-purush, Narayan, Kanteshwar and Chandeshwar before it was Christianized by the Portuguese.

Chorao Island is also home to the famous Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. Amongst the Christian places of worship on the Chorao Island are the Church of St Bartholomew and the Church of Our Lady of Grace.
