Religiously Historical. A tendancy for copying traditional cultures !!! A point to be thought of!! Ultimately If there is a religion that religion has nothing more to spare than the other one.For all teaches the SAME concept.

The church was visible from across, and it fascinated me for it's typical Potugese style architecture. I took the local ferry across for Rs 2/-, and walked along the canal to the church! After admiring the exteriors, I contemplated if I... More
