Sangodd at Orda Candolim Goa

The traditional 'Sangodd' is held in the village of Candolim on the feast of St Peter & St. Paul on 29th June.

The 'Sangodd' begins at the Orda Jetty after a prayer service at the Holy cross Chapel, followed by a cultural program on top the stage on the "Sangodd" at the jetty and goes on making few halts along the bank of candolim creek and each time it halts a cultural program follows, before it returns back to the Jetty.

One can hear chants of "Viva San Pedr" on top of the Sangodd, just like people say "Viva San Jao" during the feast of St. John the Baptist.

Sangodd has a history of around 150 years. Looking back at the inception of the Sangodd at Orda(candolim), It is stated that there were many fishermen lived here, St. Peter is the parton of the Fishermen and these fishermen celebrated his feast taking out the Sangodd.

A colorful festival of boats is organized. There is a live cultural program on a church like structure that is erected in four boats. The binding together of the boats is called "Sangodd". Many artists of the konkani stage along with the villagers take part in the cultural programm organised in the evening at Sangodd.
