I visited this place long time ago. But my memory still stays fresh. It is huge and attracts many people from the locality and tourists. They offer prayers in different languages.

Didn't go inside, but a very nice architecture from out. Again beware if you are planning on shopping. Do not pay anything more tha 30-40% of what the shopkeepers ask. ALso better buy from this place rather than from government run emporiums. Those are charging more than double and without any bargain.

Whichever religion u preach, St Philomena's church is a MUST at the end of the day. Needless to say that the paintings and sculptures of Jesus Era were very gud. Obviously the prayers are worth attending. I enjoyed and felt blessed.

I feel I am spoiled by churches in Europe. It was the first stop we saw and although nice to visit, was not my favorite thing. We did meet a nice auto driver there though who took us to Chamundi hills.
