  • Unlike other Catholic churches in India, the temple looks very beautiful and interesting, albeit small in size. The building was constructed in the Gothic style, looks well-groomed. Inside the temple, as in Indian temples, everything is decorated very colorfully. There is something to see.

  • I went there on Christmas. It had a lovely feeling. The place was crowded but fun. Shivajee nagar ,where it is located, was bustling with people. You get some good eateries nearby. I don't about the other days but this is worth a visit.
  • A place of miracles.This church has grown in Stature.Our family home Jubilee Cottage was just behind this it was my playground when I was a child till I was 5.And then I went to Bombay.Today 53 years later it is still a place of sanctity but very very crowded
  • It is a really nice church in Bangalore. But, parking is very big problem. Because, it is situated near to the shivaji nagar market..
  • The church has stained glass windows. The basilica has been built in the Gothic style with arches, ornamental motifs and stained glass windows. Multiple columns and the tall spires of the basilica can be seen from quite a distance.
  • Good Church and attached Chapel for prayers, lighting candles... Very crowded on certain occasions, and there's a flood of people, a sea of humanity of all faiths, wearing amusing florescent coloured saris, other dress, in funny pink, green, orange colors.
