Churches in Old Town Goa- India

On my four month trip round India in 2015 my starting point was Panaji in the district of Goa . From here I looped round the whole of the southern part of India back up to Chennai. So here in the old town of Panaji, are some of the amazing Churches.

Goa, the party capital of India, not only lures party goers but is also thronged by visitors who are fascinated with its rich heritage. The Popular churches of Goa adds to its historical legacy and also offer a life-changing experience. Some of the tourists visit these churches for spiritual enlightenment while others find the desired seclusion. Many of them could be seen marvelling at the architectural splendour showcased by these holy places whereas a few of them simply come here to offer their prayers. Whatever the reason may be, here are some of the must-visit churches in Goa which are the centre of attractions for the tourists planning to visit the state.

Although the best time to visit Goa is from October to March but one plan a trip especially in the month of December to see how the state and its churches becomes alive to celebrate Christmas.
