It's an ancient church and should visit without a miss. Church and prayer service are very good. Must visit.

Nice church in Shivajinagar , Bengaluru. Wel kept and full of activity in the church because of the local school attached to it. Also on the street opposite the entrance. We spent about an hour here and i enjoyed it.

It is near shivajinagar bus stand and on the busy roads. Just feel the architecture and listen to the prayers and feel the devotional vibe.

Awesome Gothic architecture, the Basilica looks even more wonderful especially during festive Seasons when decorated. The Basilica can be located easily, and is situated very near to bus stand, however the surrounding areas are not very good, unclean, overly crowded. The Basilica's compound is super clean. A must visit place for everyone. It's open for everyone and you can pray... More

An awesome and spectacular church. This is one of the best in Bangalore and is worth the visit. The mass is a very humbling experience and is usually very crowded during Sundays. I have been visiting the church since i was a wee boy and the paint to the outer structure has changed twice and a lot of renovation done... More
