Fantastic Architecture

You will be amazed by the intricate carvings inside and outside the Church. It is a huge campus and the interiors are really breathtaking. Visit it to marvel at the architecture.

Great place for worship. Mother Mary s basilica in the heart of city. Near shivajinagar bus stand so accessibility is not an issue here. But it's in the middle of a big crowd no you can't expect silence in and around this place which is the only issue here. Kannada, English and Tamil services are being followed here.
