Sri Hanuman Zatra is conducted in the month of February at Panaji
, the capital city of Goa
. It is celebrated on a hillock with a beautiful scenic view of the green surroundings, rivulets and salt-pans around. The idol of Lord Hanuman
is taken out in a palanquin procession which winds its way through the main thoroughfare of the town, attended with offerings given by people of both the communities, Hindu and Christian, traditionally. A big fare is also held on the occasion.
