Sun Dial

Just outside the Saviour of the World Church in Loutolim one will find this stone sun dial, an astronomical monument installed in the village over four hundred years back for the benefit of people who wanted to follow the time.

This sundial features in the work of renowned artist Mario Miranda where he depicts the local society of the learned elders gathering around it to partake of conversation and exchange pleasantries.

The model works on the principle of the shadows of the two curved arms falling on the markings of the time etched in the stone.
