PORTUGUESE DOOR IN INDIA, DAMAN

Church Gate

Church Gate: this interesting Portuguese door of the church,  i found in Daman,  India, while walking through the streets. This church was built around 400 yrs back in the colonizing days of Portuguese in India. A larger fort was built in Motidaman in the 16th century.  It still stands today, most of it preserved in its original form. Today the majority of the municipal government offices are situated inside this fort .Portuguese peoples ruled this part of India for many days, its influence can be seen on culture & architecture of this place.
