The St. Paul’s Church, is situated on Diu Island, on the west coast of India, a Union Territory of India. Diu came under the control of Portuguese colonists in early 16th century.
The St. Paul’s Church, named after St. Paul, the Apostle of Jesus also known as the Apostle to the Gentiles, is still a functioning church and one of the three churches in Diu built by the Portuguese. It is considered one of the best examples of baroque architecture (artistic style) in India.
St Pauls Church is the one place I highly recommend adding in sightseeing list for Diu. We visited it in early morning hours – the serenity was baffling. I loved spending an hour sitting there in pin drop silence. Thought about life. And travel. And friends and what not.
I visited this place during our trip to Diu in April 2016. It was summer. Not the best time to visit Diu, I’d say.
