A well-preserved Portuguese colony situated in the heart of Panaji, the Capital of Goa

Colloquially referred to as Tata Institute, the path for creation of Indian Institute of Science was grueling. Lord Curzon, the man who partitioned Bengal, called on Nobel laureate Sir William Ramsay to search for a suitable place. Jamshedji Tata endowed almost half of his wealth in his will. The Maharaja of Mysore Krishna Raja Wadiyar IV donated 371 acres or land and the Nizam of Hyderabad contributed 3 lakh Rupees. After a long wait of 18 years, in 1911 the foundation stone was laid. However, Jamshedji Tata never lived to see his dream project come true.
