  • It is on of the major church in banglore, it's bulid in 1812
  • One of the greatest infrastructures of all time in Bangalore. The inside of the church is marvellous and their service is good. Everyone must experience it once. I always look forward to their mini market sales that sell a variety of homemade dishes and drinks. As the proceedings go to the church and service, it is worth buying from them. Everyone there is friendly as you get to know them.
