  • A very historic church that attracts devotees from all over Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. It's one of Bangalore's oldest churches and is located at the heart of the city. For those who are non believers, the church is located in Shivajinagar..which is the (un) official commercial Street of Bangalore. You can drop by in between your shopping to have a peaceful couple of minutes and marvel at the architecture.
