St. Paul's Church - Review
Of the three churches that were built by the Portuguese in Diu, this one is the most famous and best surviving. It was built in 1610, and is one of the best examples of Baroque architecture in the whole country. Visitors particularly appreciate the intricate woodwork in the church's interior. There are also some excellent examples of stucco decoration, supposedly carved by Indian silversmiths. The altar is made out of a single piece of Burmease teak wood, and has an image of the Virgin Mary. The congregation of the church has about 450 members. It is a tranquil place.

St. Paul's Church, Diu Reviews
It's a nice church... When I went inside around 6:15 pm some prayer was going on... I sat there for a while and felt peaceful. Good for photography from outside as it's not allowed inside
Very nice peaceful place. Church structure is Gothic arts of Europe. Diu was administrated by Portuguese.
The church with Old world feel is situated very close to the Jalandhar beach. This beautiful church is built in the typical Portuguese style and is famous with the tourists. Parking can be an issue on a busy as the road are congested and no earmarked parking is available.
In diu this church is main church and also very ancient church. There are diu museum behind the church. St Paul church is in the middle of city. Take right turn from municipal corporation and then you find the church. Big white building called निर्मला माता. Diu fort is also very close site to church. If you want to go directly nagoa beach then there is a short cut. But please ask the local because there so many zigzag roads. Nagoa is the main beach in Diu. A peaceful environment in st paul church. Detailed history also mentioned there. One should visit the place.
The church dedicated to our lady of immaculate conception,was founded in 1600 A.D. by the Jesuits as seminary and was subsequently rebuild in 1807 A.D The most attractive part of the church is it's impressive gothic facade considered to be the most elaborate of any of the Portuguese churches in India.
