Churches and Temples

Experience Goa's fascinating heritage

Basilica of Bom Jesus 

Over 400 years old, the Basilica of Bom Jesus Church, India’s first Minor Basilica, is considered one of the best examples of baroque architecture in India. The design of the basilica, inspired by St. Paul’s Church, is complete with curves and embellishments. The layout is simplistic, inspired by renaissance style, and it became the first church in India to be elevated to the status of Minor Basilica with the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier. Although St. Francis Xavier died on his voyage to China and he was buried there, his body was brought back to Goa after two years, in accordance with his wishes. It was then discovered that the body was still intact.  A public viewing of the body of St. Francis Xavier is held every ten years with the body being laid in a casket.
