Basilica Of Bom Jesus - Review
The Basilica of Bom Jesus or Borea Jezuchi Bajilika is a very well-known Church in Goa. It is a beautiful Basilica and is known for its simplicity and elegance. The architecture is of baroque style and it this type of design is rarely seen in a country like India.
It is famous for the glass case which holds the remains of St. Francis Xavier and there are many interesting stories about the remains. The Basilica is more that 400 years old and is a very important religious site today. The exquisite gold altar is also a major crowd puller. Even though the church is partially in ruins, the rustic charm of the building has been preserved as it hasn’t been allowed to be plastered. This grand and yet simply built church draws countless visitors every year and is an important place for Christianity in India.

Basilica Of Bom Jesus, Panaji Reviews
Awesome and Very definitely worth a visit. Having an audio guide was tremendously helpful in adding substance to all that was to be seen. Stunningly beautiful and very interesting from architectural, historic and religious perspectives. . Tickets close early in the evening...there are a few portraits on sale here...relatively expensive. There is a good park nearby for a stroll...and a line of souvenir shops line the lane leading to the church. Easier and faster to walk to this place from old Goa . Spectacular is a small word It is stunning from the inside. Everywhere you look you will find something beautiful. There are paintings on the wall . Its just unbelievably beautiful! It was quite an spectacular experience.
If you like to explore History of Goa than you should visit this Church and take a Guide who will tell you the story about Portuguese and their establishment in INDIA ....... I was happy to see and hear about their establishment but when I got to know about them I am totally disappointed....... Architecturally it is very strong and Beautiful Design...... They have made this place well maintained......
The architecture and design is just marvellous. It's a UNESCO world heritage site after all. Famous throughout the Roman Catholic world, this contains the tomb and mortal remains of St Francis Xavier, the so-called Apostle of the Indies. Known for his legendary missionary voyages.
Awesome place... worth a visit if you are in Goa... guides are available there they tell and explain you about the place in detail... the interior and exterior both are tooo good... A great historical marvel... you feel blessed when your there...
This place is full of history and also a very beautiful place. It's recommended to research about this place a little bit so when you go and visit the church and other surrounding places you get to understand and observe everything more. There's a small counter for buying post cards and old goan history books, buying a post card is a must for mere 5rs.
