A former centre of theological studies, the Dominican Monastery is a place worth exploring for those interested in knowing about the glorious history of Daman. Christians from different corners of the country and abroad used to visit this site to offer prayers during ancient times. Now in ruins, this once-influential theological cynosure still features a sacred altar, intricately carved with beautiful floral motifs.

Two important celebrations are hosted at the Dominican Monastery every year which attract many tourists and pilgrims. The first one is the grand religious mass of St. Dominic, which takes place on third Sunday of December. Another festival is observed on 2nd February, when a large number of Catholic devotees gather here for a litany, which narrates religious stories and tales of the monastery's past.
