St. Joseph's Cathedral of Hyderabad is ranked amongst the beautiful cathedrals in India. Located in the Gun foundry area of Hyderabad, St. Joseph's Cathedral is under the supervision of the Archdiocese of Hyderabad.

Though the construction of St. Joseph's Cathedral began in 1869 by Fr. Antonio Tagliabue, it was completed only in 1872 under the supervision of Fr. Luigi Malberti. The cathedral was opened to devotees on the Christmas Eve of 1875.

St. Joseph's Cathedral is built in the Italian style of architecture. The central hall of this Cathedral can accommodate up to 500 people. There are five mammoth bells atop the open bell tower of this Cathedral. These were brought from Italy and were attached to the Cathedral in 1892. Tourists can climb the stairs of the bell tower to get views of the city.

"One of the oldest and best church in South India"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 10, 2016
Worth to visit such an old church with all the old historical style of construction. Though a small one but really peaceful and good to be there. You can see some of the walls with French and English names.
