Before Goa became a commercialised tourist destination, it was known for its "hippie culture".

Explaining how and why the cultural movement started in Goa, Prateek Dham in a piece for Tripoto, writes "1970s was the time when the hippies had taken fully-grown wings and started migrating to freer pastures in order to attain what they were eternally looking for – salvation."

And Goa proved to be just the right place for them. 

Not only were Goans accommodating of all cultures, the Indian government also did not oppose the influx because it was contributing to the local economy in an otherwise turbulent economic time in the country, he adds. 

The Facebook page "I love GOA" recently posted pictures of Goa taken in the 1970s.
