“A superb architecture and a world heritage site”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Basilica of Bom Jesus is located in Old Goa, a world heritage site declared by UNESCO. I loved the place because it was so well maintained, clean and calm. There is a dead body inside, 500 years old as told by a guide. The interior is just fantastic and I guess this is the largest church I have ever seen in India.

I strongly suggest this place to all visitors and it is really a must visit location in Goa. Goa is not only beaches, the forts and churches are superb here.

“We felt the immense history of the place”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Tour guides wait around the front of the church and give an excellent tour for 100Rp. It is well worth getting a guided tour as a lot of the significance of the objects and architecture is not obvious.
