This church is located on Veer Nariman road in South Mumbai. Legend has it that the famous Churchgate area of South Mumbai gets its name courtesy this church. The beautiful church building’s architecture is Neo-classical and Neo-Gothic.

One of the most beautiful Cathedrals in the world. My uncle used to work as a Reverend there in the early 80's. The architecture is beautiful. The inside of teh cathedral is large but very serene.
