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.

"Must visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2016
I visited this church recently on new year 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 bandra 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 mary eve and new year 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".

"Lovely and Peaceful Church"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jan 28, 2016
Classic Church so Peaceful !!!

Peacefully, pleasant, huge and handsome Church. Located in Bandra and very easily accessible from all parts of Mumbai via city bus as well as MRTS, we went to this fabulous Church and absorbed the positive vibrations over there by just sitting in silence.

Must visit for all age groups when we are in Mumbai, when we sit in silence after praying to Mother Mary we will be absolutely peaceful and feeling relaxed.

This is very quite place to attend. The Place has a great scenic view of the beach. Plus the history of the church is also divine ( Try to find it yourself ). You can spend your time in peace over here for hours (Besides during Bandra fair ).

About Mount Mary Church

80%
voted as clean

Mount Mary Church, a Roman Catholic church, is a popular religious destination in Mumbai dedicated to 'Virgin Mary'.
There is a common belief that this church, built in 1640, has healing powers. It is said that the wishes of the devotees get fulfilled by praying sincerely at this church. Also known as 'The Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount', this church is sited at a stunning location on top of a hill known as 'Sunderban Bandra', which overlooks the mighty Arabian Sea.
A lot of devotees visit this church during the 'Bandra Fair' or the 'Feast of Mount Mary' which is a week-long celebration held every September. This is the best time to visit the church with the whole family.
One can shop for religious artefacts, different shaped candles, wax figures of Virgin Mary and Goan sweets from the various stalls outside the church. Built by British in their own style of architecture, the interior work of the church is very attractive.
Other nearby attractions include Father Agnel Church and Jogger's Park.
Several buses are available from the city to Mount Mary Church. One can also hire taxis or auto-rickshaws to reach the church.
