It is one of the oldest cathedral in MG Road. This is easily accessible by Metro and Buses. The road is on the oneway. One of the iconic church and the architecture is nice. Some peace of mind.

The guard was friendly enough to let two tourists take a quick run around the building, provide we took no pictures. It's worth a quick visit, but not really much of a destination.
