By far the best church i have seen. This is a very beautiful and huge church. Sit and relax in the evening here and listen to the prayers. Outside the church, fruit chaat is very cheap (must try pineapple).

On our way from Bangalore to Mysore we stopped here to tour this amazing church. It is a wonderful example of Gothic architecture and is over 175 years old. It is absolutely gorgeous inside. The stained glass windows behind the alter are amazing works of art.

We had our visit during week day & there was no rush which itself is the biggest solace. Church is very traditional constructed in the lines of European manufacturing methods.

A marvel of old times. A beautiful landmark in center of city. Really beautiful to see the way it has been built. It really is worth a visit.

Not much to see at the moment as it is under renovation. They have holy mass around 6:30AM. So if you are on your way from bangalore to Kerala, you can have a stop over here to refresh your mind and body ;)

Enjoyed the winter evening of Mysuru in the Church compound. Its situated in Lashkar Mohalla in Mysuru,... More

This beautiful Gothic style cathedral is definitely worth a visit if you are in Mysore. Catacombs in the basement, beautiful stained glass and soaring interior combine to make this a treasure. Scaffolding, yes, but still a pleasure to see!

Thank Kathio
