Located opposite the Military Hospital in Panaji, Kala Academy is a haven for art lovers and those seeking to express their creative side.

What Is It?

Kala Academy is one of those hidden gems located in the heart of Panjim. As the name suggests, it’s a vibrant space which holds diverse art and cultural experiences in the city. A little walk towards the rear of the academy opens up to a magnificent view of the sea and a historic lighthouse . Not explored by many tourists, one can enjoy the sunset far away from the usual hustle bustle.

Anything Else?

Kala Academy has a small cafeteria which boasts of a wide variety of fresh juices, fruit salad and samosas among other things. So enjoy the view while gorging on these extremely reasonably priced food delights!


A filmmaker by profession, last year I visited Goa on a month long work trip and just fell in love with the place. My stay allowed me to explore the state in more ways than one.
