St. Catherine's Church in Goa

Featured in this video is St. Catherine's church, the first major church built by the Portuguese in Goa, a state lying on the west coast of India. Built to commemorate the taking of Old Goa on St. Catherine's day in 1510, this cathedral has historical significance.

The original structure of this church was made of simple mud, which was later replaced by a stone building in 1539. The cathedral got its present structure in 1550. Today people visiting Goa never miss to offer their prayers at this church.
