Strictly a business. Under the guise of church.
Never could find a priest. None of the nuns that were seen, smiling or friendly to anyone.

This is located in Shivajinagar, close to Russel market. The surroundings are busy, but the church has a worshipping and peaceful atmosphere. The architecture is beautiful, in Gothic style. They celebrate all the festivals such as Easter mass. People can come and pray to mother Mary and the saints and Jesus. There is also a shop to buy prayer items. There are a number of places to sit and quietly pray.

First of all, This church is the one of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in Bangalore (OUR LADY OF GOOD HEALTH). However, while spending a few time in the basilica always bring awesome experience. St. Mary's basilica bring more spiritual experience because of the ambiance. Besides that people have an opportunity for confession in every Saturdays from 4:00 Pm onwards in certain languages such as Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and English. Moreover, Mass timing details are prescribed in the church official website.

Loved it very eternal experience, felt a lot of power. Wonderful people ....unlike St.Joan of Arc church in new jersey united states, very horrible parish , hypocritical and phony. , My friend had the horrible experience were one of the priest threw the body of christ in his hand. its a very racially biased church.
But when i visited the church in India i felt very welcomed and felt a sense of peace and belonging.

Absolutely different from European concept, but - or maybe, thus - refreshing to the eye and rejoicing to the heart. Bengaluru is a bit complicated for a first-time western tourist to explore, so cannot say whether there is something similar or better, but visiting this basilica was worth for me.

During Christmas, if you are in Bengaluru, try to visit this Church during Night. Full of Colourful attractive environment & atmosphere. Last but not least, while inside the Church, don't fail to pray for the well being of the Society.
