About Konkani Matrimony

The first known writer of the Konkani language was Shamaraja. He was born in the 15th century and was a devotee of Lord Krishna. Much of Kokani's historical literature was unfortunately destroyed during the Goa Inquisition. Today, Kokani is one of the scheduled languages of India and is the official language of Goa.

Konkani people hail mainly from the southern part of the Maharashtra coast, Goa, and coastal Karnataka. They are not unified by any state boundary but by their mother tongue Konkani. Despite belonging to different states, they share their daily lifestyles and rituals. Music of Nadaswaram, traditional style wedding saree, decorations with mango leaves and jasmine makes Konkani matrimonial a really memorable experience.
