Porvorim, once used as the grazing ground for the cattle, has today been developed into a township. It belongs to the Bardez
taluk and is surrounded by six villages. This is a plateau which stands on a hillock and located across the Mandovi River
. There is a bridge over the river which connects it with rest of the state.
