Heritage Spread in the City of Panaji

Location: Panaji
Status: Documentation Report
Year of Completion: 2014

CCF has documented and listed more than 900 heritage buildings in Panaji which contribute to the historic fabric of the city. We identified these structures through a detailed survey on each individual structure, noting its historic and architectural relevance, along with its contribution to the immediate streetscape. These structures are graded into Grade I, Grade II (A) and Grade II (B), Grade III and Grade IV with respect to their significance and value, and were assessed by the Town and Country Planning Department, Goa.

The following buildings and areas in Panaji are of heritage value:
Sao Tome
Fontainhas
Mala
Portais
CBD (Central Business District)
Altinho
Campal
Ribandar

These precincts and structures lose their heritage value when new developments overpower the visual fabric of heritage neighbourhoods. Goa needs context-specific heritage guidelines, and thus the preservation list plays a crucial role in framing such guidelines for the upcoming developments in heritage precincts.

After the research and documentation stage, CCF created a set of maps and guidelines to document important heritage structures, as well as to serve as regulations for the conservation and renovation of heritage buildings.
