“What an architecture !!”
Reviewed 12 February 2017

It is near shivajinagar bus stand and on the busy roads. Just feel the architecture and listen to the prayers and feel the devotional vibe. You dont have to belong to a particular religion to enrich all these experiences. You just have to be human. I am a hindu by religion and I don't differentiate anyone or any religion. All are equal to me.

“Amazing and Devine experience”
Reviewed 17 December 2016

An awesome and spectacular church. This is one of the best in Bangalore and is worth the visit.
The mass is a very humbling experience and is usually very crowded during Sundays. I have been visiting the church since i was a wee boy and the paint to the outer structure has changed twice and a lot of renovation done inside to ensure that it is neat and tidy.
The highlight is when there is flag hoisting, during the month of Nov-Dec I think, where devotees from Christian and non-Christian communities dress up in orange attire and pay their respects to Mother Mary.
Parking is an issue, so plan well so that you don't end up getting your vehicle seized by the Police patrol.
