Beautiful church

Beautiful and well kept, the stained glass is fantastic, the altar and all the carvings and internal and external features are alarmingly beautiful.

its architecture resembles that of the basilica in lourdes in south of france and is siyuated in reu dumas. Its chief feature is its masonary which gives the look of white marble though it is built with limestone and albumin

Loved the structure and the ambiance created by this church. A very peaceful place and good place to be in the morning time as there always goes some prayers which are worth a watch.

It is one of the well restored church in Pondicherry. The inside is pretty well kept and open to all .the color of the building is little unusual. They have made and effort to keep the age old fixture the same way. Sit and prey for a while one can feel the solace of the place. Centrally located .

This is another church that is a must visit! It is close to railway station. So, if you are coming via train then this is unmissable! However, if you are not, then you might miss on this beauty.

Very close to the Pondicherry railway station. Very good architecture with lot of stained glasses. Could be maintained little bit better on the outside/entrance. Can spend about 10-15 mins in this church looking at the history, glass work etc

This is the same as the Sacred Heart of Jesus, spent some time looking for another church but after going up and down the street a couple of times discovered it was the same. Great renovation and well worth a look.

This basilica is the same as the church of the sacred heart of Jesus (which I have already reviewed) It is pretty, but in a crowded area opposite the railway station.

It is a good church close to railway station but not clean as such. It is not maintained properly. Good to stoop here for 10-15 min to see.
