This is a nice small church with splendid architecture. We were staying nearby so it was a pleasure for us to visit this place twice. Peaceful and beautiful. I liked. If you are not too packed with the schedule, do visit this place.

Located in the city and so you can have a quick visit here while you are exploring Mysore. The architecture is notable.

It was the last place to view in our itenary and the decision was stupid because this place was wonderful. The statue of St. Philomina itself is a cool piece of sheer talent. The best time to visit is in the morning. The only drawback is its situated near a liquor shop and the street was poorly lit.

Visited the church on 6 dec, 2014. Awe-inspiring church. It's magnificent. The peculiar catholic style. A good place to feel at peace and also to click pictures . The photography is not allowed inside the church . But outside you are free to capture it on your cameras and cell phones.

This should be the first and foremost church which was built in Mysore, style of european church, thus being famous, otherwise a simple place for christians praying, has become a tourist spot for last 5 to 6 decades. The towers are standing tall and magnificient. Christmas and New year attract big crowds particularly local citizens.
