There are two major rivers in Goa, the Zuari River and the Mandovi River. On the Southern Bank of the Mandovi river lies the new city of Goa called the Panaji formerly known as Panjim during the Portuguese regime.
After liberation of Goa in 1962 two major Bridges were built across the Zuari and Mandovi river, and now the Konkan Railway bridge runs along side the Zuari Bridge.
The Zuari bridge on the Zuari river is one of the most scenic and beautiful spots in Goa that links the capital city of Panaji in North Goa with Vasco da Gama and the Mormugao port in South Goa. It is also considered a major link for two important districts of Goa.
