Mount Mary Church is located at a hillock at Bandstand, Bandra. Its very peaceful inside the church, you forget all your worries by just kneeling down and praying to Mother Mary.

There are numerous candle stalls outside the church for you to choose from.
Definetly worth going

This is one of the famous churches in Mumbai. The famous Mount Mary steps lead up to the church. The external architecture is great to see and photograph.

There is a Mount Mary fair held every year in September and the surrounding roads are closed and gets very crowded too.

I visited this at the peak of the monsoon season, during Ganesh puja festival season in September 2013 and thought that the place was VERY peaceful and calming. I went during the Mount Mary feast festival and i had a great time climbing the roads leading upto the temple.

I have been going to Mount Mary Church since more then 25 years now. The feat starts from the sunday post Teachers Day in September. I have been visiting the church every year during the feast.
when you get clsoer to the church you will see many stalls selling various items made out of wax. these are various body part and thigns like houses, bikes,car, money books....it is a belief that if you make a wish and promise Mother Mary that when that wish comes true you will offer that item in wax to her...for example if somebody is ill and having an eye problem you pray to Mother Mary and ask her to get the problem solved and when you go to the church during the feast you offer wax eyes a thanks giving to Mother Mary....Many people who dont have kids also pray and once they get a baby offer wax dolls to Mother Mary as thanks giving....i have been doing it for years now and with each passing Year Mother Mary had fulfilled ach and every wish of mine...so all of those who are in Mumbia aor will visit Mumbai during Sept please do visit the Mount Mary Church during the feast and take her blessing :)

Its a steep climb to the church and walk only if you are an avid walker,else the car/taxi will take you to the hilltop ,there is plentiful parking and the view is fantastic.outside the church there are several shops selling candles,rosaries and knickknacks .Snacky food is also available.
The quote of the day was "Go up LORD to the place of your rest"
Inside is the statue of virgin Mary with Jesus.The church has a quiet and serene ambiance and services are held in Marathi too.
On the walls there are paintings depicting the life and sayings from the Bible
Opposite to the church is the Diocesan pastoral center with stairs going up and gives a strategic view of the sea with ofcourse buildings strewn too.
