The church is located in a busy area. But one will be fascinated with the marvelous architecture... Nothing much to do here. Once can enjoy the beauty of the church and pray for some time..

One of very few churches of Bangalore built in the 17th century. St. Mary's Basilica is a serene and picturesque church. Parking is not available so I highly recommend going there in an auto rickshaw or a chauffeur driven car.
