This is very quite place to attend. The Place has a great scenic view of the beach. Plus the history of the church is also divine ( Try to find it yourself ). You can spend your time in peace over here for hours (Besides during Bandra fair )

Visit during the Mount Mary fair is always a must. Brings back the memories of childhood as we were regulars there.

If you travel to Mumbai this is must. The monument is an architectural testimony to the Pre-independence era. Simply sit and meditate and feel the peace. Visit the Statue of Mary bang opp the Church and pray for your hearts desire.

C1 ( 2014.12.09 ) This church was very beautiful and different from Europe church. This structure had some difference that I've seen and good. Especially, the wall picture was painting by Indian style, I think. I respect that India was embraced any religion. There was a worth to visit.

If you don't mind climbing the stairs .. it's a must place for all Catholics. The road to get there can be a bit crowded and narrowing down, as you get closer to it .. but, it's right within the vicinity of the busy area. Autos are available almost at the base of the steps.

The church and its location at Mount Mary is lovely. If you go during the Mount Mary fair, then it becomes quite crazy with people queuing up to get in. But outside of the one week when the fair happens, it is a nice place to visit.

Mount Mary Church may not be one of the oldest churches in Mumbai but it is definitely one of the most famous & visited ones. Every year in September, people trod up to the church to give thanks to Mother Mary or to ask her for something; it is believed that offering a candle in the shape of what you... More

a must if you have time in Mumbai. This is one of the oldest churches in Mumbai. Huge complex. Great fair each year. Can combine with any visit to the suburb of Bandra which is full of hum drum in Mumbai
