Not as majestic as other Gates of India. Just once a visit and that too not recommended if you are short of time as there are many other beautiful places around.

Not as majestic as India Gate in Delhi or Gateway of India in Mumbai, and definitely not as spectacular as The Rumi Darwaza in Lucknow, the Viceroy's arch, constructed by the grandson of Vasco da Gama stands in tribute to the historical charm of old Goa. Situated near St Cajetan Cathedral and behind Se Cathedral, it leads to the river... More

I don't understand why people suggested me this place. It is just an arch, albeit a well maintained one. It is similar to an arch in many old cities of country. I will not even call it historical or architecture marvel as such.

Your trip to Goa isn't complete without seeing the Viceroy's Arch and nearby Cathedrals. Take a break from the beach and do see the historic sites

Vicoroy's Arch in Old Goa is magnificent structure in Old Goa. It resembles Portuguese heritage and the site is wonderful. The view of the jetty through the arch was very nice.

The Viceroy’s Arch was erected by Vasco da Gama’s grandson, Francisco da Gama, who became viceroy in 1597. The arch carries the deer emblem on Vasco da Gama’s coat of arms. The statue of da Gama himself adorns the center of the arch.

It remind me of Mumbais Gate Way of India. Its on Way towards Panjim, the old Goa. Since it can be looked up while passing, its grandure impresses the viewer. It does require time to stop, study and understand the importance, which a casual on looker shall miss out totally. A Portugalan heritage edifice. Looks grand and magnificant.
