One can come here anytime of the day (specially in the evening before 5pm). It is on the main road and has parking area as well. Come and sit here to avoid chaos in the city

No matter what religion you follow or not, this place will bring peace to your mind. The interior of the church is simply wonderful. Very nice place to be at if you wanna spend some time in peace while not doing much.

The church is one of the oldest in Shillong. Its history is mentioned in the Don Bosco museum if one is interested to know. It’s quite interesting. Do visit this church if in Shillong. You’ll love the panoramic view of this large compound. The Loreto...More
