There is a tapering-tower called “Kator” (scissor). The Kator itself has legends about a lost prince who in gratitude for finding his way constructed the Kator. The local folks believe that there was something inscribed on the Kator in a strange language. According to folklore decrypting of the message will open the Kator which will reveal a bhangaracho handdo (a pot full of gold).
The folks of Assagao have always loved flowers. YOU’d notice an abundance of Ambolim (Crossandra), zueyo (Jasmine), Xiumitim (Chrysanthemum), Roses, and Rozam (Marigold). The Assagao Comunidade (Community) even maintained a piece of fertile land for flowering at Temba called Fullamcho Mollo. Folks would grow flowers in this piece of land and take them for sale in the famous Mapusa market. This led to Assagao being termed as Fullanchom Ganv of Valley of Flowers.
Assagao had at one point 7 mineral-rich hill springs. Most have dried up due to the vagaries of nature of the human intervention. Two of the springs were of great use for their healing powers – Spring of Valle in Tollem ao Sul de Regueiro ou Fonte known for lung problems and rheumatism. The other spring called Dossazor was known for curing eye problems.
Assagao’s rich biodiversity includes flora (esp the medicinal plants & flowers, 8-10 different varieties of berries that can be eaten). It is a birder’s paradise… you can spot a variety of birds including the Purple Sunbird, Wagtail, Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher, Red-whiskered Bulbul, and the Asian Yellow Oriole right on your open verandah.
