Panaji is the first city in India to be built on a grid system. The city was once the capital of Portuguese India and hosts churches built during Portuguese rule, including St. Catherine's Church (1594), which has been declared as a national monument by the Archaeological Survey of India; Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church (1633); St. Andrew's Basilica (1862) and Santa Monica Chapel, also known as "Pantheon" or "Casa dos Capelos", where Afonso de Albuquerque was buried in 1515 AD after his death at Bednore; it is now home to an Indian Navy museum with relics from Vasco da Gama's ships such as 'São Gabriel' and 'São Rafael'. The present building was completed in 1883 under supervision of Filippe Costa e Silva, who became Goa’s first engineer-in-chief when he designed it along with other notable buildings like Casa do Infantado ('House for Orphanage'), Secretariat Building etc.
