Beautiful church at Christmas time
Mount Mary Church is actually a basilica and located on the hill of bandra. The architecture is very nice and if you can visit at night during christmas you will see the beautiful illumination.
i visited this church recently on newyear event conducted here with my friends...this is an "Excellent architecture dedicated to Mount Mary" and it is neatly maintained.It is located in "bandra area of mumbai city".and the sea view adds glamour to this place.this area and the beautiful church and cross on top of the church can be clearly seen from the "local train while passing between mohim and badra station"..the "other main attraction here is the 40 feet mary statue"..and this place will be heavily crowded and decorations will be awesome on "mount marry eve and newyear eve, christmas eve"..so i recommend every one to "visit this church during at least these eves and have relaxation from the busy city culture".
