This Marvellous Victorian Style Church is inspired by the beauty of Cologne Church of Germany. Designed by a French architect and built By Hindu King of Mysuru (Krishnaraj Wodiyar) to cater the needs of the then European residents of the city, this Church is a true symbol of India's secularism and pluralism. The tall twin Spire can be seen from a long distance. It's a must visit if you are in Mysuru.

The Church is situated close to City bus stand and about 2kms from Mysuru Palace.

Church is open from 5 am to 6 pm. Photography inside the church is not allowed.

Parking for visitors is also available inside the church.

WHAT THEHEEBEE SAYS ABOUT ST. PHILOMENA'S CATHEDRAL

While looking for tourist spots of Mysuru, St. Philomena's Cathedral would be listed in every list that comes up on the internet. And I feel that it is justified to be one of the tourist places worth visiting, the main reason is to appreciate the architecture of the cathedral.

It is considered as one of the tallest Churches in Asia and holds historical importance of being constructed initially in 1843 by Maharaja of Mysore and re-constructed in 1936.

The church has majestic architecture of Neo Gothic style and anyone who loves old architecture styles, can spend hours just observing the delicate architectural work.

My visit was short and in hurry. I could not step in as it was too crowded due to some ongoing function. It is still in my list and I would like to visit it once again with some more time at hand.

beautiful , the stained glass windows with the sun shining through make beautiful reflections on the floor, it quite small inside but very serene, down to the crypt where the tomb of Philomena lies, we were a bit bothered by school children when we left asking for money which we werent expecting

Interesting church in centre of Mysore.
Very tall but does not hold a lot of people.
Small section of stained glass but with vivid colours.
The crypt is interesting in the number of names listed.
