Create an itinerary including Saint Philomena Church
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.

  • It's a beautiful place to visit with your family and children. The entire area is huge and you can spend almost half a day exploring the interior of this amazing museum. The reason I am giving it a 3 star rating even though I liked it so much, is that the entry fees is 100 rupees and I think that is too much for a structure of historic importance. I think it can be reduced a bit so that more people can get a chance to view it.
  • This is a great church are which has gothic architectural structures. One of the oldest church in Mysore its very near to city and easily accessible but parking space is limited. Located the in the center of the bustling city of Mysore, this holy building stands glorious with beautiful design and architecture. The church is open to the general public and the interiors are very well maintained with some beautiful stained glass paintings. Church is open from 5am to 6pm. No entry fee or pass is required. Photography inside the church is not allowed.
