DESTINATION INDIA - GOA : The Carpet of Joy, Saligao

Carpet of Joy - as the name suggest this place brings exceptional joy to the people who visit this place. The phenomenonal placement of plastic bottles and skill with which this was created, seriously hats off to Museum of Goa- (MOG)!  This initiative is not just a tourist attraction but also brings forth a strong message of keeping Goa clean and green. Understanding the growing epidemic of littering of plastic in the state is slowly but very largely increasing the garbage into this pristine coastline and diverse ecosystem. This project of MOG is targetted towards the youth in particular as they will grow up to be the future and indeed an instrumental agents to educate both the children as well as the adults of the society!

A total of 150000 plastic bottles were used to create this beautiful structure with the help of over 3,000 and more students worked to ensure this initiative was a success. Certainly, if there's something called 'Wealth out of best' then this, definately tops the list!

Watch your ground because as we are clicking photographs often we get so engrossed that we end up stamping these beautiful bottles. How you are enjoying this sight, lets preserve it for someone else as well.  



  1. I have been to Goa a couple of times. But, I've never heard anything about this place from anyone. This place seems pretty eccentric and deserves a visit. Thank-you for sharing :)

    1. You are most welcome. Thank you for your lovely comment.

  2. I really love Goa - it's one of my favorite places in this country. I have never heard of this, though! If we have time to make one more trip (doubtful with the monsoon already seemingly blowing in), I will have to check it out. Thanks!
