We visited this Church on Christmas eve and it was fully crowded. We had to join a big queue to enter the church. The atmosphere was serene and overwhelming seeing people from all religion visiting Church on Christmas eve along with children. Santa Claus and Reindeer decoration was done nearby and people selling hats and candles.

A beautiful old cathedral built in neo-gothic style with huge facade. Visited recently. The church is undergoing major renovation and hence you can't enter it.

Ammazing architecture and quite an old structure. The busy road which abuts the church is perhaps detrimental to this marvellous piece of architecture, since the vibrations may weaken it and the dust that the traffic throws up all sit on it till the next rainy day. Please preserve it and take care. Visitors from abroad, please do take a look.... More

Although the interior is under renovation,this church is well worth a visit .There is the statue of the saint,catacombs and a rock cave.The architecture is striking.When the interior is renovated,it should be superb.Be sure to note the police "chowki" at the gate ....its where our word came from.
