Architectural marvels as they are, some of the churches have been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. One such example is the Basilica of Bom Jesus. The place is dedicated to baby Jesus and is a pilgrimage site for millions. This highly revered church still holds mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier in a silver casket which makes this place very unique. Another site which is truly a beauty to behold is Se Cathedral. The site took 80 years to come in existence and had two towers, one each site adorning its beauty. But unfortunately one tower got struck by lightning.
