  • Dominican Monastery, situated in the fort of Moti Daman, is frequently referred to as the Ruined Church. Most travellers visit this archaeological landscape to witness its curiosity provoking sight. It was considered as the most prestigious church in the territory. The monastery is said to have been erected in 1567 in remembrance of Saint Dominic. Christians offered their prayers, and theological teachings were provided to scholars who moved to the monastery from across the globe. It is believed that the destruction of the church was caused by an earthquake. The construction workers who built the church employed the classic Portuguese architectural methods, which can be noticed in the other ancient churches of the territory. The visitors get to observe the monastery’s arches and walls that withstood the earthquake.
  • Beautiful ruins. Loved it. It is located within the Moti Daman fort complex. The old lighthouse is walking distance from it.
