Pondycherry has a lot to show of the French presence in our country.The church is wonderfully well maintained.The glass paintings are exquisite.

It is unusual to see a Basilica with this type of colors and it really makes it nice. There are many statues in it. It is worth going to see it.

This Church at Pondicherry was at a walking distance from the hotel at beach. We reached the church in the Mass timing and Prayer was on . It was such serene feeling ..... cannot express in words. Every devine place , be it of any religion, the feeling is same and inexpressible.

Basilica of the Secred Heart is a beautiful Church . It is big but a proportionate building.

While in Pondicherry it is a "must see" place.

A religious place cannot be rated .... these holy places will always be best .... whether it is small in size or big.

This church is right opposite the railway station and is beautiful to look at from the outside. However, there was a wedding ongoing which limited our inside visit. The church naves were all beautifully decorated with some excellent stained glass specimens, but we were unable to appreciate it as much as we would have liked to!

Old church and Nice architecture over all. Not very big but can spend some time here. Not more than half an hour to spend unless you are going for your prayers.
