This place you have to visit when you travel shillong. Just book a car for whole day sight seeing and the driver will take you there.

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

A very peaceful place..a place which awakens the spiritual side of you....the church covers a very large area and is situated at an elevation which gives you the pleasure of enjoying some great views of Shillong from the church....

Nice peaceful place frequented by the locals. The blue building looks much better from inside. Visit towards the evening for a good view.

The church isnt that old. Appears to be a more modern construction. Large courtyards, good garden. Good place to relax for a while.

the church is definitely well maintained and an ideal place place for offering prayer to God....the inner part is awesome....but taking snaps inside the church is not allowed....the outer part is quite huge and also very clean...the thing that marvels u the most is its architecture....we felt as if we were transported to a church in Europe
