A trip to Shillong is incomplete without visiting this magnificent church. The compound is beautifully maintained and the cathedral hall contains paintings and carvings.

Cathedral Catholic Church, also known as the Cathedral of Mary Help of Christians, is a beautiful shrine located in the heart of Shillong. This cathedral falls under the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Shillong, which administers similar shrines in Meghalaya's Khasi and Jaintia hills.

Please pay a visit to the Cathedral if you are in Shillong. The compound, the structure, the decorations, the paintings of the Cathedral leave a lasting impression on everyone who has been there.
It stands on the place of the first Church built by the German Fathers ( Salvatorians from Germany). It was a wooden structure and was destroyed by fire. The construction of the Cathedral of Mary Help of Christians began on the same site on 25 October, 1936. A unique feature of the Cathedral building is that it stands on sand. As Shillong is prone to earthquakes, sand provides elasticity.
Serene, peaceful place worth a visit!!!

The grotto church at street level was nice to look around, and free to take photos. The main cathedral above has no photography signs, and the security guard there strictly enforced this when we were there. Don't quite know why they need to prohibit photos, but they do!
