“Beautiful church”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Lovely church very near the main railway station, large structure that is striking from outside. Peaceful inside and is worth viewing if you are in the area.

“Magnificent Church - A Must visit”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This church only few years back completed its 100years and it still looks absolutely beautiful. Superb architecture and once inside the calmness has an altogether different effect on you. Its nearby the pondicherry railway station.
