“A Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

A heritage Church and very much a part of the Pondicherry tradition. Fortunately the building is being maintained and I hope they continue to do so.

“Short, fun visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

It's a large church and as an American, it was very interesting to see. It was beautifully decorated and very ornate. It did not take long to visit - we had our driver drop us off and we were back in the car within about 10 minutes after walking through. Definitely worthwhile to walk through, regardless of your religious beliefs.

“Glorious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We visited this church just a few days after Christmas and during late evening time. The well lighted and decorated church looked beautiful with a tall christmas tree made of green net on the premises. There was a straw bed depicting the event of Christ's birth. The church interiors are awesome. A beautiful place to visit.
