Google timing are not correct. It quite old church and good architecture. It's not that big can be completed max in 15-20 mins.

Best view in the morning or afternoon, nigh view is not that great.

Architecture to be admired
Jan 2021
Went in the evening just before the mass time. A well maintained Basilica. Enough Covid control measures like, providing the Hand sanitiser, Checking the temperature and maintaining the Social distance etc..,

Beautiful gothic architecture to admire, a place filled divine silence ... if this is not a place of worship then what is? The simple red and white building paint colour combination gives a grandeur look.

In total, it is a place to visit and spend time.

Religious place of worship
Dec 2020
The location of the cathedral, which is more than a century old, near the station, is a very popular holy place with easy parking.
It is an idyllic setting to celebrate Catholic weddings
The frame of this basilica in red brings out a good relief.
A sports competition shoot was filmed in this place with all the French participants in the race via Beijing.

A place for solitude and contemplation
Feb 2020 • Solo
The church is located very near the railway station. It displays some stunning stained glass windows and the whole atmosphere inside is one of quiet contemplation. I went there one afternoon and stayed over an hour soaking in the peace. A must visit when in Pondicherry

Beautifully painted open church
Feb 2020 • Solo
The church is beautifully painted - not least using red and white colours. There are very large doors which are totally open. It is calm and peaceful there.

Any place of worship & has the presence of God is beautiful.
This church is big, well maintained.
It's not Gothic as as some reviews say.
Easy to get there & ample parking space on the road.
