Haunted Three Kings Church, Goa, shown in Boothnath movie

Three kings church is a small church located on a hill top, somewhere between Panjim and Madgao, near Verna and Velsao, in Cansaulim village of South Goa. It is closer to Verna railway station and is visible easily at a distance once you're in the area.  Refer Map at the bottom of the post.

This Three Kings church was reportedly showcased in Boothnath movie  (first edition, not Boothnath returns). On January 6th, every year,  I am told some celebrations take place here.

The name, Three Kings church, is reportedly arrived at because of Three Portugese Kings who, during their attempt to Capture Goa, met in this Church for some strategy meeting and one of the Kings poisoned the other two. Since then, few believe the church is haunted!

The church was locked, so we couldn't go inside. But what was more interesting is the view we can see from this hill top.

Below are the photos of beautiful Goan country side, as seen from the Three Kings church hill

The church seemed to be lacking maintenance and seldom used. Campus has lots of trees to sit under, few benches and is ideal place for a short visit.
No toilets, water or any other facilities are available uphill.
