A typical day in the village of Cansaulim is better than most. This beautiful village is known to be one of the 3 places in Goa that hosts the Three King's Festival every year on January 06. The festival is dedicated to Three Kings of Magi who came with their gifts to infant Jesus the Christ. The Three Kings Chapel, being set on a hill, the people climb the many steps to reach it, in what then becomes a pilgrimage that they make devotedly for nine days every year. On the feast day, three boys between the ages of 8 and 12 are chosen from each of the three villages and they are crowned the Magi for that year. This is a great honour and the boys groom themselves and conduct themselves accordingly. They are swathed in rich costumes and brought in procession, via three different routes, astride white horses and preceded by a brass band, to the Church on the Mount.
This Trail takes you on a journey into this beautiful festival , and we discover the making of the village of Cansaulim along with it.
