This is located in Shivaji Nagar and one of the oldest one in Bangalore. Sundays are usually crowded, I visited along with my friend on Friday. The Church architecture is really wonderful.

This was a real surprize. Christian basilica, full of people and the surrounding only muslims. Very impresive.
