BOM JESUS CHURCH early 17th century church dedicated to Bom Jesus is one of the most impressive holy places in Daman. It was completed, in it's present form in 1603 AD and is a living tribute to the excellence achieved by Portuguese architects and artisans in ornate and intricate church buildings.
The richly carved doorway and the highly decorated interiors together with the lofty ceiling are aesthetic and pleasing.
There are 6 finely made statues in the best traditions of Roman Church art and architecture. In the early days of Portuguese rule, Bom Jesus was a parish church. The church now attracts both tourists and pilgrims in large numbers.
