The church is quite awesome and build very well. The church is based on Gothic style. Currently the church is under restoration and probably in another year, shall be back to its glory. But even during the restoration, if visiting Mysore, must visit this place

No, you dont have to pay anything. As they are doing the renovation to the church, they are accepting donations through donation box. If you are willing to donate something towards the work, you could do it.
