Gomantak Vidya Niketan


A century old institution , Gomant Vidya Niketan Hall lies bang center in Margao City. Gomant Vidya Niketan today is identified by most visitors to margao as a  large auditorium with a library on the ground floor where most of the Tiatrs and Marriages are held along with other functions such as book exhibitions. The reality is far different . Gomant Vidya Niketan  was originally setup in 1912 as Saraswat Brahman Samaj (SBS) by nine youth and it focused on cultural activities . Post liberation this insitution was renamed as Gomant Vidya Niketan. Today the staunchest supporters of both Konkani and Marathi still identify themselves with this institution.
