St. Mary's Basilica, Bengaluru

4.5
Take a tour of St. Mary's Basilica, one of the oldest churches in Bangalore and the only church in India elevated to the status of a basilica. Observe the Gothic style of the basilica, with ornamental motifs and stained glass windows. The columns and tall spires of the church represent a landmark that can be seen from far away. Participate in the famous festivities held annually during the St. Mary’s Feast in September, which reveres the birth of Mother Mary for 10 days with grand chariot procession holding place on the last day, as devotees draw the chariot holding Mother Mary’s image. To plan Bengaluru vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Nice church. But it's located in heart of the city. So very high traffic to reach. Also nearby markets are there. So always noise will be there... But infrastructure wise church is very awesome.
  • Located very near to Shivajinagar Bus Station. Very Calm Place. Place is maintained very Neatly. I usually go there in the Evenings. Standing before the St. Mary's Statue gives immense relief. Even during Festival time, Order is maintained. Though situated in a Crowded Area, once you enter the Basilica, you will feel entirely different. Masses are conducted in English, Kannada and Tamil. There is a Hall for conducting Wedding and Wedding Reception and other functions.
  • Nice church. But the location of the church is not good at all. It is really very close to the market. When I reach there it stinks.
  • A Basilica! True blessings, peace of mind, relief from stress guaranteed. Best to attend a mass here, priests are very knowledgeable and helpful. Every festival is celebrated in a grand manner and you'd love the way the church is decorated for every occasion. Annual feast of 10 days celebrated every year ending on September 8th. On all these 10 days, masses are conducted for every half an hour starting from 5 in the morning in Tamil, English, Kannada languages.
  • Calm serene place in the midst of the busy streets. Architectural beauty..! For peace lovers. ✌
