If you are in the area, then go. It was nice but not spectacular. Well kept. The structure was quite something. We could not go inside as Christmas Eve Mass was going on. However, the doors were open and we managed to have a look from outside. Pretty and simple and it was nice to observe the Christmas Eve Mass.

St. Thomas Cathedral at Horniman Circle is the oldest church in Mumbai built in 1713, yes more than 300 years old and restored again in 1837. Lovely stained glass work at the church with beautiful memorial of officers and dignatories of the British era including Thomas Carr who was the 1st Bishop of Bombay
Interesting fact that I got to know is that the cathedral marks colonial Bombay's point zero, the exact centre of the city. A lovely and peaceful church to visit on an afternoon with historic significance

My wife an I visited St Thomas Anglican Cathedral (Built in 1718), as part of a city guided tour. We were shown the important features of the church, rather than just allowing us to look around, take photos and leave. The visit by the King George V and Queen Mary of England to the Cathedral on 3 November 1911 was an important event in its history, but surely the visit by a living Saint is just as important. Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu of India (Saint Teresa of Calcutta) also visited for a service on 8 January 1993 and there is a brass plate where she sat. The pews inside the Cathedral are a really beautiful place of tranquility on weekdays, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The other claim to fame is the Cathedral marks colonial Bombay's point zero, the exact centre of the city. A visit to this city's Anglican Cathedral to see these items, is certainly recommended.

A Cathedral situated in a very busy area. Once one enters the cathedral is very peaceful. The architecture is very unusual. Quite a few bodies from the late Bishops arme buried in the church. This cathedral was Build by the British.

Zero Point for old Mumbai when all distances were measured from here. An oasis in the city with lovely gardens and worth a visit.

St. Thomas Cathedral is an Anglican Church built in British Empire era, first ever Anglican Church to be built in Mumbai and dedicated to the first apostle of India. The building is a mix of Neo-Classical and Gothic Revival styles. The latter only obvious from the high altar both in the interior and exterior by walking around to the back of the church, as it looks like there was some restoration worked with a different design from the nave up tot he high altar. The exterior is predominantly white with bands of yellow. Inside the church is well maintained and very Protestant, that is, there's not that much in the way of decorations. However, there are many bas relief sculptures of memorials and a few stained glass windows behind the high altar worth a look.

The church is located in the historic area of Mumbai and there's many landmark buildings around the stars, so it's worth a detour.

Very beautiful and quiet place to visit in the very centre of Mumbai. Well worth spending time walking around and reading all the plaques on the walls.
