This place has a lovely view of the city and the harbour. A must visit if you're looking for a secluded getaway.

A good place to visit. The Church is located on the hill, having port at the back side. The experience is superb, where you can be with the God, & with the beauty of nature too.

It being Christmas time, the cute little church on Ross hill was decked up, with a crib erected and festoons fluttering. This was the only church we have ever seen anywhere in the world where Jesus and Mary could be found wearing marigold garlands. Effects of cross-cutting cultures?

Unique because it was perched on a hill - which also has a Muslim place of worship and a Hindu Shrine (Lord Venkateswara). 3 Faiths sharing a common location. Then the authorities decided to cut up the hill to accommodate the ever-expanding Port. Yet the views from the Top are... More
