  • Very nice cathedral . Attended a special service at the cathedral . I was impressed by the serenity of the cathedral 
  • Beautiful heritage church from colonial times in the heart of Bangalore, surrounded by old trees. At the beginning of MG Road and the road that has the church's name - St Marks road. 
  • Other attractions in Bangalore, this Catholic Cathedral as something not made special impressions. The building itself is somehow not caused to yourself any interest-ordinary Church for the parishioners. Maybe someone will be interested in the Cathedral from a historical point of view, because it is already about 200 years.

  • hese photos have not been changed for past 3 years after been pointed out that thay are of St Marks Hotel.
  • Beautiful church ⛪ With three English services.. 😊
  • St. Mark's Cathedral is named after Saint Mark very nice and traditional church
  • Traditional Anglican Church. Communion service every week. Patrons will enjoy the old world sanctity and peace. Good outreach programmes. Very good sunday school and youth programmes. St. Marks music academy is very popular and much patronised. One of the few churches with an impressive pipe organ and very experienced conductors. Good choir and last but not least, beautiful architecture with a high dome and very well decorated altar.
  • A place of prayer and hymns. A location where many a weddings are solemnised.
