Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception

Built in the year 1619, this church looks unique because of its design which is like a Christian Wedding Cake. The church was built by the Portuguese by replacing what was an even bigger church. The previous church was built in the 16th Century. Over the years there have been many additions and beautifications made to this church and this is also one reason for which it stands steady whereas the main church of Goa is almost in ruins in spite of being built in the 18th Century. This was earlier the place where the sailors from Lisbon used to halt and pray to thank the lord for their safety and then head towards Ela in the North Goa.

Just a two-minute drive from the Tataki took us to Our Lady of The Immaculate Conception Church. Built in 1541, the church, lovingly called the “crown” of Panjim, is located atop a hill and is painted white to signify the Immaculate Virgin. In the same square, facing the Church, just across the main road is a bookstore – Singbal’s Book House, where we hopped in to have a look and ended up spending a considerable part of the remainder of the afternoon.

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church: It's located just around the corner of Panjim center, It's most popular known after SRK movie Josh 2000, We were not allowed as we got to know it was under renovation but view from outside as night falls it's really amazing.
