Maybe I have seen too many architectural marvels a church has to offer and thus did not find this church to score well here But I have heard many mumbaikar asking me to visit here, thus I guess the message was spiritual and not philosophical.

In the madness of Mumbai this is an oasis of peace. There is an annual fair that happens here and that adds to the madness. Rest of the year is really peaceful. The fair of course is very popular and attracts thousands. At night also you can light a candle opposite the church. It is the quietest and most peaceful... More

This century old church is a great tourist attraction in Mumbai. It is located in Bandra west of the Mumbai city. Thousands of people come here to pay their respect to the Church. This is a very peaceful place. The Church building was constructed in honour of Saint Mary. This is also a must for visit place in Mumbai.

No comparison to St. Stevens in Austria or any other place of this caliber. There is no tour. Just a decent little spot to remember Jesus.

This church is well known across Mumbai and there are huge crowds during the Mount Mary fair. I must confess I did not go when the fair was on and I liked the visit. It is a big church and beautiful !

I have been to Mount Mary countless number of times. This is one of my favorite places in Mumbai - please note my review is based on almost all my visits at Midnight or very early morning. So usually I am the only one at this place at that hour or very rarely accompanied by another sole looking for peace.... More

If you are looking forward to spend some time relaxing and seeing the old architecture of India then this place is a must visit. I have visited this place with my wife luckily in September and this place was lit by the Bandara festival.
