Church of Saint Cajetao

The design of the church is very similar to St. Peter Church in Rome. This church was built in the 17th century. It was built of laterite blocks.
History of the Church
The church is white washed. It has got two twin towers at the entrance and a dome in the middle. The pillars on the outside of the church are beautifully carved.

In the church premises is a well, which is currently covered. 

The main altar is beautiful and so are the other altars and the pulpit. The carvings are wonderful. The Stations of the Cross are actual paintings in the church.
