Surrounded with a beautiful garden, the Cathedral stands so wonderfully. The landmark of this city. The colorful stained window glasses make the Cathedral alive interiorly.

An impressive cathedral, we were just wandering around after lunch. We really felt excited to see the church. Both the exterior and interior ate impressive and the garden next door is also very beautiful.
