"The Church of Bom Jesus is an old shrine, located in the Moti Daman region of Daman. One of the most imposing historical and religious edifices of the city, this church reflects the colonial influences the town has had in the past. Established in AD 1559, this parish was finally consecrated as a church in AD 1603, when the Portuguese reign in Daman was in its initial years.

Flaunting exquisite Roman style of architecture, this church is a fine specimen of the brilliant engineering artistry of the Portuguese. The intricately carved gateways, artistically adorned interiors and wooden altars of this shrine are at their glorious best, even after several years. Six statues of revered saints, which are highly aesthetic in appeal, can be found on the southern entrance of this church. Both tourists and devotees visit the Church of Bom Jesus in large numbers throughout the year, especially during Christian festivals.
