Very beautiful church, with gothic styled architecture. Walk in with your footwear, but using mobile phones or making any noise is taboo inside. Just enjoy the peace and calm there. It is very close to the palace, plus the visit does not take much time. And hence it is a must-visit.

Constructed in 1936, its architecture was inspired by the Cologne Cathedral in Germany. I saw both of these two churches and feel it is smaller version of Cologne Cathedral. We also enjoyed a wedding ceremony during our visit there.

This church with its gothic style architecture and stained glass windows is a very calm place. It is small but very well maintained and clean. The atmosphere is quite welcoming.

We visited the church on the 4th july weekend and found it well maintained, beautiful, and calm. The stained glass inside the church adds to the visual beauty of bygone times. There is a basement which is worth a look, which was being renovated when we were visiting.
