Mae De Deus Church, Saligao

27 Sep 2009

Mae De Deus Church is an beautiful example of Gothic Architecture, located at Saligaon (Sal meaning wooded, Gaon meaning village, so translates to “village in forest”), some 14 kms away from Panjim, the capital of Goa.


I consider it as one of the most beautiful churches I have seen in Goa. Build in 1873, the shrine of the Nossa Senhora Mai de deus was brought over  from the ruins of the convent of Mae de Deus at Old  Goa. Saligaon has one of Goa’s first English language schools, Mater Dei.
