Interesting architecture, peaceful and nice inside. A small shop outside the church (within the premises) has some interesting gospel music CDs for a steal and other Catholic items available for purchase.

It is one of few tourist attractions in Mysore worth a visit. This place is nice in winter, specially during Christmas and New year when the place is lit up with millions of light.

The church is undergoing some renovations due to wear and tear. You can see children and adults around the vicinity. Bought a statue of St Philomena for my mother

Nice and big Church but unfortunately there was a mass going on so we could not enter. We just look pictures outside. The feeling around the church had a positive vibes.

Its a nice and beautiful church which is quite old but has a distinctive charm and serenity. The idols are quite attractive and gives a sense of peace. A good attraction in the centre of the city

Beautiful architecture..gothic and dark..if u r fond of churches then plz take out time and visit this one..its not so huge so wont take time, and an added plus is the fact that its not so touristy. Try and take a round of the inner rooms and the basement.
