Well, yeah: you have to see this church -- it dominates its Margao neighborhood with its towering white-washed walls. Inside is pure Portugal, with lots of gilt and carving and saints' statues. The Portuguese tore down a Hindu temple to build the first church; the Muslims knocked down several iterations before this one stuck. Been there close to 3-1/2 centuries now. Besides, it's cool inside and a great respite from Margao's relentless sun.

Inside the church there is a rectangular square in front and a row of antique houses on both sides. This church is the finest examples of the Indian Baroque style. The main altar of this Church is dedicated to the Holy Spirit. The church can be entered from the side entrance to the north. In the church the huge cross dates from the late 17th century which is a great attraction. The feast is celebrated on the 10th of June.

This spectacle takes place on every equinox day at the church of the Holy Spirit at Margao. We went to see same last year. The Church was packed to the capacity and the time was just before sunset. Sarvesh Borkar who discovered this was in attendence so also the priest of the Church. Just before sundown the rays of the sun illuminated the statue of Holy Spirit and two other statues. The church is exactly aligned to west and the rays of the setting sun pass through the centre occulus and the windows on either side illuminating the altar at specific locations. It is a beautiful sight, an engineering marvel to be more precise.

If you are in South Goa, In or around Margao You have to Visit the Holy Spirit Church The church is open every day from 9.00am to 12.00pm & in the evenings from 4.00pm to 7.00pm. This is an amazing Architectural contribution of the Jesuits to Goa, The Church will soon be 500 Years Old.

While you are in You get to witness Carved altars to Mary, St Michael & St. Paul, Carved and gilded reredos behind the main altar along with the nice restored pipe Organ, The walls and the Ceilings too will impress you.

This Church is located about 15-20 Minutes walk from Our lady grace church.As the church was closed when we visited we could not enter it.The facade is beautiful.This is a very old church in Goa built by Portuguese.

A bit of History : The place were Holy spirit church stood initially had temple of Damodar. Portuguese during their reign destroyed the temple, filled the temple pond and built Church of Holy spirits in the temple pond place. The Damodar temple is now loacted in Zambaulim,zambaulim is about 35 Kms from Margoa.

Church may look more beautiful in interiors but we couldn't go inside.

Went to attend a wedding in this church. The Altar was very beautiful and the work done in gold painting reminded one of cathedrals in Spain. The choir was good and have to say that the priest gave a good sermon for a newly married couple. Very spacious church one of the biggest in Goa. Plenty of parking space in front of the church.

More than the architecture and the structure I really admire the history and the story behind this magnificent church. Make sure that you will have a full guided tour of the place.
