MANGALORE will be the site of an Indian Customs reflecting the spirit of the former Portuguese enclave of Goa, reports New Delhi's Times of India.

The department will strive to make it into a tourist spot - for local and foreigners alike - giving the visitors a slice of history attached to 133-year-old building that CPWD has restored at a cost of INR89.46 lakh (US$1.14 million), said customs commissioner AK Jyotishi.



The customs office is a repository of history of international trade that this coastal city has over the centuries.



'Mangalore was an important trade port then and has imbibed a lot of culture from outside (traders) while exporting its culture outside,' said Mr Jyotishi.



'Customs office will be given a vibrant, impressive front facade with decorative lighting, good lawn and a memorabilia shop set up to kindle tourist interest,' he said.
