  • 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.
