Azad Maidan

Park in Panaji

To the west of the Municipal Gardens, the grassy Azad Maidan won’t win any prizes at a flower show. Its centrepiece is a small pavilion (whose Corinthian pillars were reclaimed from the rubble in Old Goa), which houses a modern sculpture dedicated to freedom fighter and ‘Father of Goan Nationalism’ Dr Tristao de Braganza Cunha (1891–1958).
