St. Mary's Basilica, Bengaluru

4.5
Take a tour of St. Mary's Basilica, one of the oldest churches in Bangalore and the only church in India elevated to the status of a basilica. Observe the Gothic style of the basilica, with ornamental motifs and stained glass windows. The columns and tall spires of the church represent a landmark that can be seen from far away. Participate in the famous festivities held annually during the St. Mary’s Feast in September, which reveres the birth of Mother Mary for 10 days with grand chariot procession holding place on the last day, as devotees draw the chariot holding Mother Mary’s image. To plan Bengaluru vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • This is really a great and peaceful place to visit. The architecture is designed so gracefully and beautifully. I visited here during Christmas and this place was decorated so beautifully and have maintained the crowd well. I would recommend not to bring your Car or vehicle here. This is at walkable distance from. Major bus stops . I would definitely recommend everybody to visit here once. 😊😊
  • A Basilica! True blessings, peace of mind, relief from stress guaranteed. Best to attend a mass here, priests are very knowledgeable and helpful. Every festival is celebrated in a grand manner and you'd love the way the church is decorated for every occasion. Annual feast of 10 days celebrated every year ending on September 8th. On all these 10 days, masses are conducted for every half an hour starting from 5 in the morning in Tamil, English, Kannada languages. Thank you
  • A good church. The church building looks nice. It is very near to shivaji nagar bus stand and commercial street. There is wheelchair accesible entrance into the compound. Small parking area is available. Function hall is there. Church is always crowded.
  • St. Mary's Basilica is located in the Archdiocese of Bangalore in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is among the oldest churches in Bangalore and the first church in the state that has been elevated to the status of a minor basilica.[1][2][3] It is famous for festivities held during the St. Mary's Feast in the month of September each year, attracting devotees from the entire region of Bangalore.
  • Nice church. But it's located in heart of the city. So very high traffic to reach. Also nearby markets are there. So always noise will be there... But infrastructure wise church is very awesome.
