Discover the most famous church in India - Basilica of Bom Jesus

Built in 1594 then opened to the public in 1605, the Basilica of Bom Jesus is a famous Roman Catholic church located in Old Goa - the former capital of Portuguese India, which is also a part of the Churches and convents of Goa UNESCO World Heritage Site. The church holds the mortal remains of Saint Francis Xavier who died while he was on his way to China. Standing a height of 18m, it is the only church in Old Goa not plastered on the outside. Being a finest example of Baroque architecture, the Basilica of Bom Jesus features many beautiful paintings depicting scenes from the life of St. Francis Xavier. Upon entering, we can witness gorgeous carvings and woodwork which adds further attraction to the history of the location. People can visit the basilica even on the public holidays and it takes about one hour to discover the whole ancient monument. Visiting hours of the church is from 9:00am to 6:30pm from Monday to Saturday while on Sundays the timing starts at 10:30am. Requiring no entry ticket, the Basilica of Bom Jesus is an interesting religious site where could offer a leisure outing when in Old Goa.
