Step inside the cathedral, and the chaos of Mumbai is a distant memory l The cathedral is a haven of serene tranquility, where everything is forgotten, and you enter another world, wher you can wonder at its beauty or quietly say a prayer

This cathedral was an amazing place to find in Mumbai, compared to many of the other buildings, this one is very plain inside, however this does give it a certain air of calmness and tranquility, especially with all the hussle and bussel outside. One feature of the interior is the number of fans to keep the congregation cool during the... More

Walked into the cathedral while my family friends waited for their toddler to come out of the neighbouring Cathedral infant school. Spent half an hour inside marveling at the beautiful stainglass windows , majestic marble tombstones and in-memoriam plaques of long-gone British Indian citizens and the endless rows of pews. Just an unbelievable atmosphere in this church. Furthermore the exterior... More

Our 1st church visited. It was quiet and peaceful. Lots of history in the foyer to read and in the sanctuary as well. A prayer request station where you can submit your written prayer request. Huge inside. Quite a few worshippers seated.

It has an impressive facade and is a must visit if you are visiting Kala Ghoda. Close to Horniman Circle, you should go check out the old stained glass with St Thomas. Its a UNESCO heritage site.

C1 ( 2014.12.10 ) This cathedral's structure was not harmonious with another building, I think, because this structure was Europe style. The cathedral was very calm and good. The atmosphere was reverant. This cathedral was not far from main attraction, so just 10 minutes walking, could go there.
