Front structure of the Se Cathedral in Goa, seen from the side
The magnificent structure of the Se Cathedral in old Goa, a very old monument and still being used for prayers. The Cathedral is a UNESCO world heritage structure, which was consecrated in the year 1640 (being commissioned in the year 1552). The Cathedral was constructed when the Portuguese controlled Goa, and hence they constructed a number of religious structures in the same area such as the Bom Jesus Basilica, the fallen church of St. Augustine, and the Se Cathedral.
Even from such an angled view, the architecture looks very impressive and you can see the amount of maintenance that goes to make sure that the building looks lovely even today, centuries after being built.
