The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Bandra West
Known as the Queen of Suburbs, Bandra is Mumbai’s favourite neighbourhood Buzzing with hip and artsy events, watering holes in every nook and corner, quaint cafes for every mood of the day, graffitied streets of tiny Catholic villages, stunning views of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and Worli’s skyline from the historic Bandra Fort, are just some of the reasons that makes Bandra a reigning cultural hotspot. All visitors always feel welcomed here by the aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through the bakeries on Hill Road, celebrities casually strolling around the bylanes of Pali Hill, street shopping on Linking Road, beautiful sunsets at Carter Road & Bandstand and candle-lit historic churches including the centuries-old Mount Mary Basilica.

The Basilica of Our Lady of The Mount also known as Mount Mary Church is located on a hillock in Bandra. It has a scenic view of the Arabian Sea and the architecture is very prestigious.

I was highly recommended to visit the Basilica by my brother who mentioned it’s a very beautiful church, which is very peaceful and serene.

I was very lucky that I managed to visit the Church on a Saturday afternoon where there wasn’t much crowd. I was fascinated by the beauty of the architecture and once inside you are mesmerized seeing Mother Mary statue holding Jesus in her arms. It’s grand and you feel the vibrant energy, peace and quietness.

It’s a great place to spend time as it brings you to a meditative state.
The church is well kept and is clean.
I had bought candles from the stalls outside and lit it and prayed.
I felt light and happy after my visit.

There are many stalls outside the church where they sell different models of candles for special purpose.

People of all faith visit the Basilica and I would definitely visit on a next trip.
I would highly recommend the Basilica to anyone who wants to visit Mount Mary Church as it’s a very special place to visit.

A beautiful basilica located in Bandra. We went on Christmas Day when we were in the area. Naturally very busy and crowded. However, it was nice to observe the service and the locals. Very pretty and well looked after. Inside was different from what I imagined. Would recommend. My only negative is all the people hounding you outside for money or to buy candles.

On every 8th of September. a weeklong fair takes place when thousand of devotees visit this place.

This Basilica, build by the portuguese in 1705, has stood the test of time, and the current building, already a hundred years now, is a photographer's paradise, and a serene experience of faith and prayers inside.
Be sure to capture the rustic paintings on the ceiling and the 12 apostles on the walls. It will give you an old world charm, and yet when you step out, this is one of the most elite (expensive) places to live in, in Mumbai. Several film personalities live around this Basilica.
It does get crowded on festivals and weekends, a great time to visit is any weekday afternoon.
