Christian Art in Goa
When various religious orders landed in Goa, after the Portuguese occupation, they erected noble and expensive churches, chapels, monasteries, convents and colleges. Many of these are reckoned as outstanding examples of Christian architecture. Most of the churches in Goa exhibit tiered frontispiece and are framed with columns and pilasters, generally presenting single or a combination of classic orders of architecture.
