Located to the north of the city, this colossal church is a stunning neo-Gothic structure built from 1933 to 1941. Also known as St Joseph's Church, it was designed after the Cologne Cathedral by Rev Rene Feuge, bishop of Mysore in 1933. The lofty crosses on the twin towers are 120 feet high.

St.Philomena Church

The church looms 165 feet into the air, its twin spires touching the sky. The interiors, much like any other church, are peaceful. The stained glass lends a lovely yellow light to the interiors of the church. The beautiful image of Philomena, who is known as a martyr for Christ, is placed uncharacteristically in an underground chapel. You can make donations in the receptacle kept here. The glass windows that adorn the interiors of the main hall depict scenes from the birth of Christ, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the Ascension of Christ. No photography allowed inside the church. And if services are on, don't disturb
