  • A nice visit. The place has a great historical significance, built around 1890's, painted by a single person.... Most importantly the paintings have been preserved really well since that time...!!! The guide there will explain in full details about the significance of this place.
  • Its a great place to visit. It is open from 6 a.m till 5.30pm for the visitors. There is a facility of chapel guide who will give all the information about the chapel free of cost. From outside it looks ordinary but inside the chapel it is awesome. A great pice of art, well maintained. Don't miss it

Where to stay in Mangalore

Mangalore offers a diverse set of accommodations to its visitors, focusing on the city center and the coast. Look north of the central train station for the widest choice in town, where some luxury options line the more prominent boulevards, and a wealth of budget hotels cater to shoestring travelers. Along the coast, some characterful old hotels cluster around the port, and a couple of hotels put you right on the sands of the beaches.
