The building is a living example of the superb architectural skills and exquisite craftsmanship of the Portuguese artisans and designers of those times. Its decorative and intricate design testifies to the matchless quality of Portuguese and Roman style of architecture.

Some of the prominent features of the church include its gold painted wooden altar, artistically carved doorways, intricately designed rococo interiors, superbly bejewelled lofty ceilings and extravagantly styled work in rosewood.

What cannot escape the eyes of the visitors are the statues of six saints which have been brilliantly sculpted in unique traditions of Roman Catholic architecture. All these aspects make the church of Bom Jesus one of the most popular tourist destinations of the region. It, therefore, attracts a large number of pilgrims and tourists from far and near.
