Interiors was under renovation. The tour process is not very well managed. Probably they can charge a nominal fee for entry and use it for administration and maintenance

Beautiful church located around 1 to 2 km from the main bus stand. One of the oldest church build as old as 1843 by Maharaja. When we visited, it was under repair.

this church is the most famous and well known church in Mysore. The architecture is awesome because of its built around 1940s.

Visited here last month. The building from outside is very nice to look at. Didn't expect Mysore to have such a nice church...

Having visited the church on a solo trip, I was keen to visit it with my family on my next Mysore trip. The church is beautiful. Renovation was on during my 2nd trip but it was still worth a visit.

One of the old church in the heart of the city. Presently under maintenance due to some repair required due to old property.
