One of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in Mumbai, Maharashtra state of India, is the Gloria Church, built in 1632 by the Portuguese Franciscans. Located in near Gateway of India in Byculla, a neighbourhood in South Mumbai, the Gloria Church (Nossa Senhora de Gloria in Portuguese), was erected funded by the DeSouza E’Lima family, who owned the Mazagaon island which they acquired from the King of Portugal in 1572. Later in 1911, the church was demolished and a new one was built in English Gothic style of architecture in its place.
