The Dominican monastery can be best viewed from the walls of the fort. Walked around the place on the fort walls and then by the gardens, we got some nice views of Arabian sea and the Dominican monastery ruins.

Trip back in time

This place is hardly visited by tourists i guess, because when we headed here, we were literally the ONLY people there. This place reeks of history, of things that were. These are generally ruins but being there is an experience. It's eerily silent, yet amazing!

Just a Skeletal Structure
Sep 2018 • Family
The Monastery as of now is just a skeletal structure of few arches and few walls. The ground has been developed into a lawn and some good looking and tended trees which gives a contrast to the otherwise dilapidated structure. If you are around the Old Light House then you can visit this place which is nearly 500 meters away within the Fort walls.

Worth a visit

If you're into history, you can check out the Monastery. Old ruins mostly but worth one time visit when in Daman

Another place full of atmosphere

I am not sure if we were really allowed on the premises, but the gate seemed open. You can wander around and use your imagination how the Portuguese were living here and apply work and pray.

Well-maintained Archaeological Site
Mar 2018 • Family
The Dominican Monastery is a well-maintained archaeological site in Moti Daman. Located inside the Daman Fort, it can be a little tricky to find. For rought directions to this place, you can take the lane that runs parallel to the left-hand side of the Bom Jesus Church and then the first right. The monastery is located at the end of this lane. We visited the place on a Sunday and found it to be closed. When we asked a passing local, she confirmed that it is closed on Sundays. So do check before you visit it. Also, the church of Bom Jesus has a map marking all the historical sites int he Fort placed at the entrance. You can use this to explore the different sites within the fort.

Peace in Ruins
Aug 2017 • Couples
Very difficult to locate this tourist spot. Was lucky as a local gentleman guided us toward this tourist spot.

As it was past 6:00 pm., the gates were closed. Did a walk around from outside the ruins. Did manage a decent photo shoot.

Although in ruins, found it really peaceful and well maintained.

A visit to this spot is justified.
