The chruch is located in the prime location near by to sea side promenade and upon entering you'll witness the French architecture at the whole church which is quite difficult to find in regular churches in India.
But if you have visited quite some good churches across the world you'll find nothing special about it but you may give it a look and go.

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Roman Catholic Basilica situated with the central city or old town of Pondicherry. This Basilica was built by French Missionaries back in the early 1900's, and the architecture is a beautiful, colorful blend of French and Indian design.

It’s a beautiful basilica, with magnificent pinkish and purplish colors inside. Outside of service hours there’s not too much activity and it’s nice to go in and look.

I was recommended to catch a rickshaw here but walked about mile to get here, glad I did, saw real side of pondicherry outside white town. The church is a beacon in the city, red and white architecture makes it stand out, I went in and worshipped and snapped photos and left, nothing like being in God's house.

It is a very beautiful and attractive church. Open and friendly. You can just stop in for a prayer. Both the externally viewed architecture and interiors have European touch, style and splendor.

This basilica is majestic with beautiful architecture and an impressive aura inside. It is best to enter through the main entrance as you get an impressive view from the front.

One of the best church architectures in Tamil Nadu area. Its striking color catches my eyes right away and the interior is also quite quaint.
