Basilica of Bom Jesus in Old Goa, India | UNESCO world heritage site – Churches and convents of Old Goa

As a kid, reading about St. Francis Xavier's incorruptible remains on display at The Basilica of Bom Jesus in Goa, was morbidly fascinating for me. It was one of the 'attractions' of Goa for me while growing up and I used to think how it could be possible to go against nature. As an adult, now I know much better about biology, still a visit to the Basilica of Bom Jesus was top on my must visit places during my monsoon getaway to Goa. The Basilica of Bom Jesus or Borea Jezuchi Bajilika is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and I had to visit it.
