“Top choice for Catholic church in Pondy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

The church was very peaceful. There is a sanctuary for adoration/quiet reflection. The architecture is very French. Well maintained. See my other reviews of Catholic churches in Pondy.

“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.
