One of the best church I have ever seen. This is made in gothic architecture and of 186 ft hight. Though the inside of the church is very general, the outside look great. Btw, the thela shops just outside the church serves testy kababs and all, you can try it.

Awesome architecture, looks unbelievable from outside but largely underwhelming when you enter...visit, take pics and leave...can be done in 20 min.

Not much really to see here, but worth the walk up from central Mysore to see something very different from the rest of the city. Impressively built church, but the insides don't have the wow factor. Guides will stop you taking any photos even of what little there is to photograph.

It can be included in your trip. Visit won't take more than half an hour and it is on the way from Bangalore to Karenji lake.

One of the largest cathedrals in South Asia.Due to the ancient architecture it has became a most popular tourist attraction in Mysore. Here St.Pilomena is preserved in the ground floor.It is very near to the KSRTC Bus stand about 1.7 km.

The grand and imposing stone structure is very nice. Well constructed and serene. The church is right in the centre of the city.
