Extremely well built by the British India - Superb architecture. Works of coloured glasses inside the church is mind blowing and so do the atmosphere. Brilliant maintenance and one thing you will remember for life is the Chandelier!! Must Visit!!!

It's modern econom cathedral church. Others small, simple churches in Shillong look more nice. Temples in Kerala, Tamil Nadu or Pondicherry are more beautiful. No photo inside.

A church very well maintained and that is why it is included in the sight-seeing itineries of Shillong.One gets mental peace by sitting inside the church for a few minutes.

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
