Church of Bom Jesus
The Church of Bom Jesus was built in 1603 and is a piece of Iberia in India, with elaborate
woodcarving.

Church of Our Lady of the Rosary

The Church of Our Lady of the Rosary, across the overgrown square has ancient Portuguese tombstones set into its cool, damp floor. Light filters through the dusty windows, illuminating the altar, a masterpiece of furiously detailed, gold-painted woodcarving.

Devka Beach

Daman Church

located about 3 kms. north of the Nani Daman. But the ambience of the place is quiet and easy. The bars and hotels dot the quiet beachside road.

Jampore Beach

The palm-shaded Jampore Beach is located about 23 kms. south of Moti Daman. This beach is better, but not good for swimming.
