Gorai is a small village that is located in the North Western part of the state of Maharashtra. Gorai is a place that is known for its beaches and there are long stretches of empty beaches in the village. However the Arabian Sea around Mumbai and its nearby areas cannot be used for swimming due to the pollution from the cities.

Gorai has a substantial Christian population and the religion was introduced by the Portuguese when they reached the place in the 16th century. Gorai has three main churches, the oldest among them is the Reis Magos and this is situated near the Vairalla Tank. The new parish church and the Infant Jesus Chapel are the other churches that are located in the town. The new parish church is also called the Three Magi Church and this was built in 1810. Infant Jesus Chapel is a relatively new church and was built near the ruins of an old church. These are interesting places to visit in Gorai.
