The Our Lady of Rosary Church building at Navelim was first built by the Jesuits in the 1590s; the present, Portuguese-style whitewashed structure was constructed later. According to legend a wealthy merchant was passing in front of church and he received a message saying he will lose his wealth. He entered church and prayed to our lady of Rosary. His prayers were answered and he promised to build the church on a large scale.
Navelim is about 3 kms from Margao bus stand.
