Next day, I was planning to visit Doodh Sagar which is a small trek and a place for adventure sports. But due to heavy rain last night it was closed and we have to come back empty handed. But since the weather was nice, it was a great ride in rain. But I don't want to waste time in waiting and sleeping at hotel so I asked local people about famous spots where one could visit. Someone tole me about a place called Basilica of Bom Jesus The Basilica of Bom Jesus or Borea Jezuchi Bajilika is located in Goa, India, and is part of the Churches and convents of Goa UNESCO World Heritage Site. The basilica holds the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier. The church is located in Old Goa, which was the capital of Goa in the early days of Portuguese rules.It took me 2 hours to reach there but when I reached there but totally worth it.

8) The Basilica of Bom Jesus Church - This has the mystical story of Pope attached to it where his body has been preserved without any chemical for a century or so. It has a very calming vibe to it when you enter as the organ playing in the background soothes your soul and the architecture of the church makes you want to just sit there and relish in the sunlight streaming in through the translucent dome. I would advise that you go on a weekday to prevent yourself from getting stuck in a crowd of other tourists.
