Reaching the church is not very smooth.As there is no parking space, we parked our car in MG Road and took an auto to reach this place. The church is located in the middle of bustling traffic and filthy surroundings. The premises itself is very clean and well maintained. Clean spaces for people to offer their prayers. However, i think... More

St. Mary's Basilica is a beautiful old era church. but its a pity to see that just outside the boundary of the church the whole road is stinking. heavily crowded area. No place for parking.

Very crowded atmosphere, both inside and outside. But the church stands tall, white and fresh. The Mary's grotto and the eucharist meditation center behind the church certainly have their power to deliver the peace you are looking for. The church is small, old with some great architecture. The chariot is displayed for atleast a month after the feast(September 8th) and... More

Well... it's a church. If you're a believer, you'll see the point :) What makes interesting for a tourist is probably the mix of "classical" church style and Indian style. You can see statues of Jesus and Mary with flower around the neck close to palm trees (not something I could see in France). What's also interesting happens while you... More

The church is located in a bustling market area of Bangalore, which is fun to walk around. There are some very busy shrines to Mary, and the church itself is interesting.
