A very huge and very calm and peaceful church. One can go inside and be one with God. One can only hear the sound of vehicles passing by on the road.

This is an old church, set among pine trees and surrounded by mountains. Inside the church 'the mind finds peace and solace.

surprisingly peaceful classic piece of architecture in such a bustling place- in middle of busy area - so many people seem to pass by without having a good look at this place - stop awhile and feel the serenity- very photographic

It's hard to miss this church when you are going to Laimu from Laichumiere. It's a beautiful building.

It is just another church, if you are going there for the architecture or the beauty of the place there isn't much, just a vast simple structure. For European or american traveller's this is not worth going.
