Do drop by and visit this church. It looks absolutely huge from the outside, but when you step inside it looks completely different. An incredibly beautiful place to visit and so very peaceful and a time to just enjoy a few moments of quiet and...More

Many pass and take photos of this small church. It is nothing special however it does have that appealing architecture from outside and is great to take photos with family. It is in the D part of time and many bus stops near by.
