French missionary zeal in the 17th and 18th centuries saw a number of grandly embellished churches built in Pondicherry. This is typical French architecture. Worth to see.

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. Right away, mark it as a must visit in your itinerary. It is just 15 mins walk from city center and 5... More

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.

The peace, the serenity and the spirituality combined in the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus are indescribably good. The sheer side of the cathedral and the architectural wonder that it is make you say WOW and having been there just 2 days past Christmas made it an even more memorable experience
