This house is unique amongst Indo-Portuguese house types, where the structure of the palace shows an adaptation to Indian customs.

The chapel, at the entrance, reminds one of a Hindu altar. The rear of the house highlights another aspect linked to the Hindu vasary.

Starting from a gallery -veranda, there is another, extending perpendicularly over the garden. So that, even though the vasary form is present in the house, it melts into this much more complex layout, which was designed for leisure hours and which presently serves as a restaurant.
