“real story”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

the tomb is at a height but the sight is very nice, the conservation of the body is an unexplained phenomenon but a true miracle

“Mixed Bag”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I really enjoyed going to see this. 8 of us took moped's from Vagator and rode to Old Goa and then Panji. However, there were others in the group who did not enjoy it as much. The church and cathedral were pretty amazing and you can get close to the coffin.

“out of the world”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I really did not expect much.. another church and another mummy...but once I stepped in, the feeling was indescribable. the relic, even though at a height, grows upon one and the guide also was well informed and clear in his descriptions. really I do not have too many words to show my feeling.

“Relics are not visible”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Tomb of St Xavier is located inside Bom( ‘good’ in Portugese) Jesus church, Old Goa. The relics are not visible to the visitors as the casket is located at a height of almost 10-12 ft, although most of the visitors come attracted to the place with the notion that they will get to see saint’s relics.
