  • The church architecture is awesome. Its always crowded. Should visit if you are in Bangalore. The feast is celebrated every year in September and the entire place gets decked up.  more »
  • Lakhs throng this place of worship a true pilgrimage for the hopeful. If you want to be with the crowd then the first week of September is the time for one to be here. The novena hall is more peaceful  more »

  • One of the oldest churches in Bangalore. The first church in Bangalore to be elevated as a minor basilica. At the main entrance you will find the depiction of mother mary carrying holding Jesus taken down from the cross after crucifixion. And on the other side of the entrance a life size statue of the risen Jesus Christ. A very peaceful atmosphere in the church.
  • There's a welcoming air of peace and tranquility, in spite of the buzz of the locale, a wonderful homage to our Mother! Flanked by a temple and a mosque, this is India's communal harmony.
  • It's the oldest church in Bangalore. It's has quite a magnificent ambience. Step inside and you'd feel God's presence and a sense of humility before our maker
  • One of the oldest Church in Bangalore. Very good architecture.I am kerala, so the think which I didn't liked was about wearing sandals inside the church
