Panaji Church

Two  Minutes walking distance

The church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception is located right in the heart of the Panjim city and is dedicated to Our Lady of Immaculate Conception. This Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception is beautifully lit up at nights on top of the mount and is one of the most important landmarks of Panjim city. 

This was reportedly one of the first Churches to be built in Goa, estimated around 1540's. It was built there because of the high ground it stood on. It was rebuilt in 1619. After Panjim became the capital city, the great bell of the Church of Our Lady of Grace in Old Goa or the "Bell of the Inquisition" was moved to this church from Aguada in 1841. At the same time, the renovation created the four tiered steps leading to the church.

The interior is simple and is dedicated to Mary. There are two altars on either side, the one on the left dedicated to Jesus and the one on the right to Our Lady of Rosary. On either side is a statue of St Peter and St Paul. In the south transept to the right of the main altar is the Chapel of St Francis Xavier, with his statue. It formerly stood in the Idalcao's Palace and was moved here when the chapel there was dismantled in 1918.

It was the first Hindu temple allowed to be built by the Portuguese in Goa after 300 years. It was approved by the Portuguese authorities in 1818 after a long delay and built subsequently. It was most recently renovated in 1983.

The deity of the temple originally came from the village of Taleigao and was moved to Bicholim in the 16th century to escape Portuguese destruction. For a short while during the approval process for building the temple the deity remained at the house of Mhamai Kamat, near the Idalcao's palace.
