Saligao, like any other village in Goa, has its fair share of intricate customs and traditions, handed down over the generations. Sadly, many of these have disappeared, as the inexorable march of the monocultural trappings of the modern world continues to trample into extinction everything else in its path. Well, happily, some of the customs and traditions are still holding out, and the superstitious beliefs will probably never die!
