Worth visiting when you are in Shillong. The architecture is Roman, place is super clean and the inside of the church is super amazing and grand! Photography is not allowed inside i guess...we sat down for some time and prayed-you feel compelled too because of its grandeur! Again gives a flavor of local culture. View from Church is also very... More

This is really grand. What a wonderful contribution the christian missionaries have made to Shillong. In the large grand hall of the cathedral, one can see paingings of last journey of Jesus. Must see.

A very huge and very calm and peaceful church. One can go inside and be one with God. One can only hear the sound of vehicles passing by on the road.

The lower level is a smaller church or chapel for prayers and lighting candles with prayer books kept along the benches. The upper level is a bigger cathedral with a huge seating which... More

This is an old church, set among pine trees and surrounded by mountains. Inside the church 'the mind finds peace and solace.

surprisingly peaceful classic piece of architecture in such a bustling place- in middle of busy area - so many people seem to pass by without having a good look at this place - stop awhile and feel the serenity- very photographic
