We visited the church late in the evening. We couldnt get inside the church. But the lightings outside the church and around the grotto was amazing. Night view around the cathedral is a must see.

The more than 50 year old Cathedral stands tall for its serenity, vastness, beauty and grandeur... I have seen many churches all over India but this one is so far in competition for the Best position... Almost at par with the ones in Europe... Not as grand as Rome or Britain churches but in India its ofcourse Grand... Do visit... More
