This church is busy and filled with people. It is beautiful on the outside and inside. It replicates the french colony style buildings and is a good place to visit.

Located next to the Pondicherry railway station, the Basilica cannot be captured in all its splendour due to the number of concrete high-rises that have come up around it. Too many people treating the place touristy and clicking selfies.

It looks like western cathedral. Well maintained inside and outside. Very near to railway station. Even tough it is off from other attractions, it worth to visit.

I visited this church in November 2015. This church is for architecture lovers. It has amazing colors and brilliant architecture as well as interior which is very old. It is also one of the oldest church to house the sacred heart of Jesus.
