Church of Our Lady of Augustia

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

As you exit from the Fort of Moti Daman to Moti Daman, very close to the football stadium lies the grave of Agostinho Xavier de Silva Vidigal, who was born in Lisbon, Portugal, and expired in Daman. A Church has been built over his grave.
Based on its size, I mistook it for a chapel, but it is in fact a Church.
According to the caretaker of the Cathedral of Bom Jesus, this Church is closed to the public as it is under renovation.

The church has been whitewashed with the artwork done up in blue. The edges of the door and the Church are painted blue.
Somehow I liked this combination of white and blue. Perhaps they should have used the same combination in the Cathedral too.
