Chimbel’s Heritage Ruins Protected From New Provedoria Block

Goa has a rich heritage that is worth protecting and a lot of people have realized that. That is why locals and heritage lovers approached Santa Cruz MLA Antonio Fernandes and Institute of Public Assistance (Provedoria) officials to change the location of the planned new Provedoria block away from Chimbel’s Church and Convent of Mount Carmel’s ruins. So, they replied that the government would consider building the new block near the old Provedoria block.

 “I am not against the project, and since there is land next to the Provedoria, the project can come up there,” Fernandes stated. “I spoke to the Provedoria minister and he said that they are ready to shift it. The topic will be closed regarding the land next to the ruins,” Fernandes added.

“On June 23, 2019, TCP’s heritage maintenance committee had taken a resolution to protect the site as a heritage site. When Chandrakant Kavlekar was sworn-in as the TCP minister, it was his duty to honour that resolution and protect this heritage site. It has to be preserved at all cost,” said GFP’s employee wing convenor John Nazareth.
