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.

St Thomas is an amazing building, and it can be found in a part of the city which has many other ones - apparently, Mumbai is the runner-up city in terms of number of Art deco buildings from the beginning of the 20th century, Stunning both inside and out!

St. Thomas Cathedral, Mumbai, completed in 1718, is the first Anglican church in Mumbai, to improve the "moral standards" of the growing British settlement. It is located on Veer Nariman Road, close to Horniman Circle Gardens and the Flora Fountain.

I have to say that this church was a welcome sight. First off it was lovely, but it was also a great place to sit down out of the rain and have a few moments of silence. The church was very clean and very large and airy.

Be sure to walk up front. On the right hand side is a special pew that has a plaque to designate where Mother Theresa sat.

After having coffee at Starbucks across the street we stopped by to take a look inside. The church is well maintained and they had a lot of parishioners inside. I usually look to see if they have a gift shop so I could send some items to my mother who is a devout Catholic, but I did not see one.

The historic beauty of this Cathedral is gripping. Once you step in you would want to stay on more than a minute. The hymns and Psalm resound, giving it a soul.

This is an island of tranquility in the midst of chaotic mumbai. While the cathedral is very simple and plain, it's still a joy to see such a lovely building in this utterly ugly part of Mumbai. Still, the acoustic in the cathedral is not great, and that's putting it mildly.
