about st thomas church

One of the major relics of the colonial past of India, St. Thomas Church is a Gothic style church is an imposing structure that dots the beautiful town of Diu. The pristine white walls of the church are enough to draw tourists from all over the country to Diu. This gigantic church, originally built in 1598, has now been acquired by the government authorities and has been converted into a museum, doubling up as a repository of archaeological findings. Today, known as the Diu Museum, it houses a lot of important antique statues, inscriptions on the stone by ancient rulers, magnificent wooden carvings, idols, shadow-clocks and various other important artifacts, all of which give us a peek into the history of Diu and its past, when it was colonised by the Portuguese. If all this is making you want to try and explore more, do have a look at an enchanting collection of the statues of Catholic saints. Besides these, there are some parts of a ruined Jaina temple, which will give you an insight of the Jaina form of architecture, a truly unique blend of different cultures.

This place has nothing much to see inside. It is more like a museum with rows of period sculptures. The premises are pretty though. Nice if you are looking for a quiet time.
