A grand and quite basilica, typical example of what you would expect from a colonial legacy perspective

Peaceful, it was a great experience.

But I have to mention about the terrible experience outside the church, there were bunch of people begging for money surrounded our car and not letting us getting in. So please beware of this situation.

A beautiful church located in Pondicherry. It’s windows made of glass has a wonderful hue to it when the sun reflects through it in the church. This is more than 100 years old and is well maintained. A good place to visit if you have time.

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.

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.

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.
