Mount Mary Basilica, Mumbai

4.7
Explore a Roman Catholic basilica dedicated to the mother of Jesus at Mount Mary Basilica. Built over a century ago, the current edifice represents the semi-gothic style of architecture; its twin towers reach a height of 30 m (98 ft). See how the holy site attracts thousands of devotees each year during the feast, followed by a week-long celebration called Bandra Fair. The 16th-century statue of the Virgin Mary outside the church represents a place which both Hindus and Christians find a kind of syncretic peace. Make Mount Mary Basilica a centerpiece of your Mumbai vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Mumbai trip planner .

  • I am not much religious myself, but visiting the church was on my list. Finally, I visited it. Loved the whole architecture of the Church. The whole ambience is positive. Luckily, I got to attend a mass. Even with so many people sitting in the church, it was not a chaotic scene. Peaceful and calm.
  • If you want to spend a splendid day visit the place. Your prayers will indeed be answered. It has washroom and water facility. Car and bike parking available. There are also best mango trees and you can watch it seasonal. People of all faith can be seen visiting the place. There is also Fair in September. Love to visit the place often with Family and friends.
  • Lively and lovely. Went around Christmas so things were lit up, folks came in and out, the hand carts outside the compound were busy and chock full of items. A very serene indoor area with people of all religions and from several parts of the world in attendance.
  • Serene and calm. Very peaceful. Open till very late for devotees to light candles and pray. Very well organized and maintained. Parking maybe an issue during peak hours, near the shrine, as the roads are narrow at the top of the mount.
  • Highly disciplined Basilica. Very humble Bishop. Religious services are held with great fervour. The choir is commendable and the main violinist is praiseworthy.
