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.

Must visit

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

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.

Beautiful interiors at sea

It is a good place where you can sit and pray. The interiors are beautiful. After your prayer and exploring stuff you can visit the bandstand which is just 2 minutes walk away from the church.
