White structure of the Se Cathedral in Goa, as seen from the grounds
The grounds of the Se Cathedral are very green, with a combination of trees and plants, along with grass. In the middle of all the greenery are the white buildings of the Se Cathedral. The construction of the Se Cathedral was started in the 16th century, with the cathedral being made to celebrate the defeat of a Muslim army at the hands of the Portuguese, and since the defeat happened on the day of the fast of the Martyr St Catherine, the Cathedral was named after her.
If you look at the cathedral now, it seems hard to believe that it was completed by the early 17th century, and it must be having a huge amount of maintenance to look in this good a condition. The structure was gleaming from the outside and in a very good condition from the inside as well.
