Saint Philomena Church, Mysuru (Mysore)

Admire the conversation between East and West at Saint Philomena Church, an attractively designed and atmospheric Catholic church. Constructed in 1936, the place of worship remains one of the largest such buildings in the country, with its twin towers and traditional cross-shaped floor plan taking particular influence from Cologne's cathedral. The striking Neo-Gothic exterior dominates the surrounding urban area, while the interiors showcase fine examples of the blend of Indian and European influences characteristic of the colonial era--note some of the female statues wearing local traditional dress.
