  • It's a very beautiful church. I have visited once here and I feel very calm and good when I seat for few minutes inside the church. Very near to MG road, one can also go there by walking from the MG metro square. If you are around somewhere there then I must say you should visit this church once😊
  • One of the oldest and most beautiful cathedrals in Bangalore. Presbyterian worship services in English and Tamil, morning and evening on Sundays. Very well maintained worship area. The choir is really worth hearing.
