Calm and peaceful, this centuries old church is located in the heart of the old fort area of Daman. Though located over a small area, one gets positive vibes at this place.

This church is located within the premises of Moti Daman fort. It looks like a small village church. The area around is calm and peaceful. The church structure is lovely but needs repair. They have mass for locals daily and once in a week they have Portuguese mass. It's an heritage of India and should be preserved.

Cathedral of Bom Jesu is within the bounds of Daman Fort. It is a beautifully maintained church with great 17th century architecture. Some nice carvings and also some great paintings set the mood. The somber nature of the church will surely calm your mind. The church looks plain from outside but the insides will definitely satiate the traveller within you.

The cathedral has amazing detailed carvings from floor to a very high roof. It is situated inside the fort and parking is easily available. You can cover it in 15 min on your way to other parts of the fort.

not so attractive. The church looks like a Church in Goa. There is no proper explanation about the structure. I could not understand the Altar carvings .
