a lovely Basilica, with good stained glass windows. The access by car is really horrible, through random traffic. But once inside, it is peaceful.

This Basilica is over a hundred years old and located in the busy Shivajij Nagar area. Go using public transport as parking here is a nightmare and almost close to impossible. Since there are lots of miracles associated with this Basilica, it has become one huge marketing place for the church. Candles, incense, flowers, donations - all this takes away... More

For visitors to Bangalore, Shivajinagar is a good experience to see a Hindu, Muslim and Christian neighborhood. I visited the Basilica, after going around in the area and seeing places of worships, especially temples and mosques. The church was always attended, either in the early morning or early evening. There was a constant flow of people coming and worshiping. As... More

We chanced upon this church by chance... it was a very beautiful place to be. The gothic architecture is attractive and imposing, and once wont miss the tall spire which can be seen from a long distance. There are some small statuettes inside of various saints. The artwork in brass is very impressive indeed. A nice place to be at!

A nice church. While in Bengaluru, Infant Jesus Church and Mary's basilica must not be missed. Located right beside the Shivajinagar bus stand and behind the Bowring hospital. Has basic facilities needed for a devotional visit to a church. Great accessibility. Can spend an hour or two with peace. Evening is the best time to visit. Excellent restaurants located near-by.
