The first experience as one enters the church is the serenity and the the calmness to the soul, one experiences. The church though old is very well maintained by the keepers the white colour embolishes the soothness one experiences at the holiest of the holy places.

This elegant church with a very Portuguese facade is one of the oldest churches in Goa. Set into a hillside, it is approached by a series of stairs that look like lattice work, apparently just one of three churches worldwide with such a stair arrangement. The inside is serene and tastefully opulent, with carved wooden, heavily gilded alters, cut glass... More

We walked along the old streets of Fonthains with Portugese houses and buildings and reached the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, also known as 'Panjim Church'. This is located very close to all the shopping areas in Panjim. The highlight is the spectacular architecture of this building as we see it from outside. From the road as... More

The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception is at Church square in Panjim. It is among Goa's earliest churches built in the mid 16th century. It was completely rebuilt in 1619. The steps leading up to the church were in a different style earlier and since being rebuilt the church has a set of wide steps then steps facing... More

This review is late. The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception is a major landmark in Panaji. I visited this church in the evening when the lights added beauty to the white building. I love the stairways at the facade. Definitely a "must see" when you are in Goa.

This church is located on the 18th June Road, Panjim, Goa. Walking distance from our hotel (Hotel Kenny). Enjoyed a lot on Christmas and New Year Eve. Christmas Cake was delicious and peace everywhere. Want to be there on every Christmas.

The Church looks simple, but impressive with beautiful and well maintained structure as well as it's surroundings. It's a picturesque location, don't forget your camera (Sadly, photography is not allowed inside the Church). The Church Square is well maintained with ample greenery. From the top, you can get a great view of the lovely Panjim city. Try to visit the... More
