Its a very beautifully designed church where the remains of Saint Francis Xaviers is restored as mummy. It is stored in a carefully decorated casket which gives it a divine aura.

The tomb is housed in the BOM Jesus Church which has an age old architecture, but during the exposition usually which takes place every 4 years, the body of St.Francis is brought down for devotees to have a closer glance and pray around the new chuch on the other side of BOM Jesus Church.

A great place to visit, where you would find a beautifully designed ancient church where the holy mortal remains of Saint Francis Xaviers is restored as mummy in a decorated casket inside the church. Must not be missed !

The place is beautiful but need to walk and walk and walk. It was hot and humid and therefore very tiring...but worth a visit.
