Was the Margao church designed and built according to an astronomical calculation? The answer could be derived from the date, March 21 — vernal or spring equinox. At 6.15pm, beams of sunlight entered the three windows on the upper level of the church’s front façade.

People gathered in large numbers at Pankri Burwadih in Hazaribag, India, on Monday morning to witness the vernal equinox when the rays of the sun fall perpendicularly over the equator resulting in equal length of day and night. This unique phenomena can be seen from this megalithic site, about 120 km from the state capital. The clear sky over Hazaribag ensured good visibility as the sun rose from the horizon.
