Chapel Of Our Lady Of Rosary, Daman

16

Located in the old Moti Daman Fort, the Chapel of Our Lady of Rosary was built by the Portuguese in the 17th century. It is one of the oldest religious monuments in Daman. The Gothic style building stands in an overgrown square which also contains the ancient tombstones of the Portuguese settlers.

The marquee of the building is deceptively simple, but one is stunned by the exquisite beauty of its interiors as one crosses the threshold. The church is made primarily of wood and is embellished with superb motifs, graphics and illustrations crafted by artisans in the ancient architectural style of the Portuguese.

The walls of the church are embellished with figures of golden cherubs blessing the visitors and the faithful alike. An array of wooden panels depict the portraits of Jesus Christ along with his disciples. The most striking feature of the interior is its ceiling which is decorated with brilliant garlands of gold-petals designed in a multitude of brilliant colours and shades.

It is believed that the idol of Mary of Rosary was fixed on the altar as a gesture of thanksgiving by the Portuguese for escaping the wrath of the Maratha forces led by Shivaji.
