One destination which shows off the architectural splendour of Shimoga the best
is the Sacred Heart Church of Shimoga. The church of the Catholics, the Sacred
Heart Church of Shimoga is said to be the second largest church in India. The area
of the Church is about 18000 sq. ft. with a big prayer hall, with a seating
capacity of 5000 people and the impressive structure of the Church is built
following the Roman and Gothic styles and aesthetics of architecture. However,
the primary attraction of the Church is the statue of Jesus.
In a state predominantly known for its temples, the Sacred Heart
Church does not fall
behind in attracting more than it's required share of tourists every year!
