“Wish and you shall recieve...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

It is a simple Oratory made of mud emerges at the Mount near Lands End, for private devotion only. A wooden statue of Our Lady, depicted as the Mother of God was brought by the Jesuits from Portugal and placed on the main altar. This could be considered as the first edifice, which immediately begins to attract a large number of devotees. It also has a chapel to fit the large number of devotees.
Once inside this beautiful church even a single glance at Mary with the child Jesus is a feast for the eye, both natural and that of faith.

Thanking God or simply paying homage with the simplest or rarest of gifts, Mount Mary’s provides ample scope. For those who are in need of divine grace, to all of you who are troubled with the problems of daily life, come and worship at the Shrine of Mary. She is the Mother of all mankind. She will grant you solace, understanding and Hope. Mother Mary leaves no one unaided.

“Bandra Feast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The best time to visit is during Bandra Feast in Sept (Mother Marys Bday, when it is most beautiful.
But avoid the 2 weekends during the Feast, cos it is too crowded

“Peace and Tranquility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Mount Mary Church has followers across all communities. The Hill is buzz of activity during the Bandra Fair in September. The devout are not the only ones visiting though. Stalls with colourful artefacts and trivia and the "rides" are a big attraction for children.
