Beautiful church in traditional Catholic cathedral style. This is a fully functioning church, so be respectful (and quiet) during services.

Serene and sanctified cathedral to console your soul. Many come to offer sacrifice and pray for a miracle. Many come back every year to cry time for prayers answered. I am included. My friend Philomena told me her mother prayed for a child and granted her prayer and named the baby Philomena.

Loved the architecture as it was an unexpected place to find in Mysore's busy market area but nevertheless a wonderful experience.

Peaceful atmosphere in the middle of Mysore. Beautiful Architecture which reminds me of St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna.

Church itself is a historic monument . The building is intimidating and shares an interior with the churches in Europe . Definitely a must visit place .
