Photographer's Note

Bom Jesus basilica is part of the churches and convents of Goa Unesco world heritage site. The basilica holds St. Francis Xavier's remains, Goa's patron saint. They still attract a huge number of tourists (christian and non-christian alike) from all over the world. The saint is said to have miraculous powers of healing. The church is located in Old Goa, which was the capital of Goa in the early days of Portuguese rules. Construction work on the church began in 1594. The church was consecrated in may 1605.
