4.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Opened in 2005, Marian Shrine of Annai Velangkanni represents a Catholic temple especially notable for its Indo-Mogul style architecture, exemplified by the seven small stories rising up to form a pyramid at the height of the structure that follows more conventional modes of Indonesian construction. Survey the colorful and vibrant biblical imagery, as well as quotes from the Bible, once you enter this unusual, storied structure. Visitors are able to collect holy water from the shrine.
