Our World

 
The Church of Our Lady of Salvation, popularly referred to as Portuguese Church, is one of the oldest churches in Mumbai. Located in Dadar, it was originally built in 1596 by the Portuguese Franciscans who called it Nossa Senhora de Salvação. The present structure, designed by famous Indian architect Charles Correa, was constructed between 1974 and 1977.

  10. I don't get the sense of the architecture...if it is a Franciscan church, I wonder how are the teachings and what are the activities of this church...vows of poverty are pretty intense with Franciscans, right?

    1. It is spartan and does blend with the surroundings.
