  • This is the second largest church in Asia. It is stunning because it is huge. There are a lot of prayer halls and since we went on a Sunday we couldn't go inside due to the mass. There are several staircases, the symmetry is beautiful and the vibe is great.
  • A beautiful and serene cathedral.. don't come here for tourism...come here to get hold of some peace. And to make you feel the connect with Lord, there are some amazing people who sing their praises for Him. And on your way out of the grand cathedral...the sign posting reads 'having been blessed by God,you are now to become a blessing for others'
