Next up: Churches, temples and forts.
Old Goa has two grand structures that are so different to sketch: The Basilica of Bom Jesus is a massive baroque structure. It’s warm colored stone is beautiful in the evening light. The Se Cathedral nearby, a large whitewashed complex begged to be drawn without my usual black pen lines.
The temples of Goa are nowhere as massive as the churches. This is my father’s ancestral temple in Mulgao, Goa. I’ve visited on and off since I was a little kid, and the same priest has always presided over it.
This is the lamp tower, outside the temple, a structure that can hold oil lamps and looks lovely all lit up at night.
