  • A wonderful place to visit as a tourist. The cathedral is kept very clean at all times. One can experience peace of mind sitting inside quietly. Also look out for the stained glasses and window paintings and floral decorations inside the hall.
  • Stopped by on our way to Laitumkhrah. Always impressed by how well maintained and clean the interior and exterior of the church is, as well as the facility in general. The interior has some lovely paintings depicting the life of Jesus. A definite must see on a visit to Shillong.
  • Impressed by the clean and clam atmosphere. No entry fees. Broad car parking place.
  • Very beautiful blue church with lush green lawns quite , serene and very well maintained & with beautiful architecture . Visited here last year in evening time , if you love to visit holi places and need some time for peace and relaxation ... must visit largest church of north east .
  • Spiritually and physically too good. One of the very best site in Shillong
