About The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception

The shining white structure of The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, which seems to resemble a white wedding cake is another distinct landmark of Goa. This church is the spiritual and geographic center of Panaji. The church is an excellent example of Portuguese Baroque style of architecture. It also has at its top the mammoth church bell from the Augustinian Monastery. Built in 1609 this church served the spiritual needs of residents and sailors. The intriguing crisscross stairways leading up to the church were built in the 18th century. The church interiors are colorful in contrast to the snowy-white exteriors. The main altar of Mary is elegantly decorated. The two side altars are gilded in gold and flanked by marble statues. The vaulted ceiling inside is a simple wooden structure. On December 8 every year, the Feast of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception is held here when the whole church is beautifully decorated.
