Located within the city premises this is a big church worth spending a few minutes... The renovations are in place when I visited however this did not hamper anything... The church is nice with an underground section and passage.. There are handicraft shops around the church that might rip you off so be alert....

This is a huge church. It dwarfs the pretty green mosque that sprouts nearby. I wonder why it's not allowed to take pictures inside. You need about 15 minutes to reach it from the Bus Stand. Hundred of white uniformed children were exercising military-style in its courtyard when I was there. An impressive display of discipline, I must say.

On the day trip in Mysore, this church was included as a to visit place. Its a nice church with nice architecture. Its quite peaceful inside as I would believe all church would be. You will find many shops around the church, do not buy anything from them. Their items are overpriced.

Nice place to visit, parking is tough, people mob you when you go inside, be aware please.... As soon as you get inside, people come to you and try to make you go to shops which are very pricey, stick with Karnataka state handicraft as they are run by the State government. Be aware that many shops are named Karnataka... More

Architecture is nice. It is a fine church and being one of the landmark of Mysore you should not skip it. being a non-Christian spiritual aspect did't appeal to me but if it appeals to you that would make it a good place to visit.

It is a big and nice neo gothic church . It look impressive from outside and worth a visit if you are in the middle of town, or you have plan to visit few other places and you pass by this place to take a look.

It's decidedly gothic western architecture makes it stand out from the ornate gold, marble which dominates significant buildings in this part of the world. You might find it a refreshing change or a reminder of home. Somehow separated from the road noise that permeates every city in India, outside was quiet and well maintained while inside was cool and contemplative,... More

The Church stands majestically in the heart of the city. It was being renovated at the time of visit but that did not affect us to look inside the church. I spent some time in prayer and a service started at 6pm in local language. A must visit in Mysore.
