Loved the visit to this Church. It's vibrant with colors and some gorgeous stained glass. Easy access from white town and well worth a visit.

I am always quite stunned by the fact that so many religions rub along so well in India so this lovely cathedral is always well attended. Local Tamils draw beautiful kholam outside the building.

110 years old historical church.Just outside of Railway station. Elevated to minor basilica to the church. The decree of Papal brief is displayed. Structure of the building is beautiful. One will feel calm and composed inside the hall. Do not miss it to visit.
