Aldona is a village in Bardez, Goa. Aldona is connected to Corjuem by a state of the art cable-stayed bridge held by six cables from either direction. The Church of St. Thomas remains an awe inspiring presence in Aldona. It was built in 1596 on a high plateau on the banks of the Mapusa River. A tributary of the Mandovi River. A flight of broad steps cut into a cliff and lead to an open plain that surrounds the grand white building. Inside, the Church is ornately decorated by symbolic biblical murals and grand statues. The treasures of the church are the subject of a village legend. At one time, the statues of the church were strung with jewellery by villagers as thanks for prayers answered. But Churches were often robbed of these jewels. The Church buildings are white-washed in the tradition of Goan churches. The band stand in the grounds and the cemetery are also white-washed and all together evoke a feeling of awe. The gate of the Church graveyard has a sign in Konkani "Aiz Maka Falea Tuka" which translates into something akin 'Me Today You Tomorrow' , a poignant reminder of our mortality.
