Church of Our Lady
Rua José Falcão, Altinho, Panaji, Goa 403001, India
Church and PalmsIn the small town of Panaji, in the main square sits an impressive white structure known as the Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church. As with many of the churches in this part of Goa, there is a visible influence from Portuguese architecture. For being such an austere structure, with its pristine white facade overlooking the town, I found the palm trees that flanked it to be quite whimsical, and a nice contrast to the serious nature of the building. Services are held daily, but the main event, the Feast of the Conception of Our Lady, is held on December 8th every year.
