Dedicated to St Thomas, the construction of the fort was completed in 1598 and is, to this day, one of the major churches of Portuguese India.

It is one of the few churches in India that have been constructed in Gothic style of architecture. With white washed walls and faded Portuguese frescoes, the church was abandoned for a few decades before it was converted into a museum in 1998.
