Great architecture, great place to gain peace. One of the must see places in Mysuru. Everything is meticulous. The design, especially the cave like passage, is excellent. Only, the place needs more illumination, and repair works should be expedited. Easily accessible.

No, you dont have to pay anything. As they are doing the renovation to the church, they are accepting donations through donation box. If you are willing to donate something towards the work, you could do it.
