Reviewed 12 September 2017

Very imposing and beautiful to look at from the outside, with an excellent view to take some photos. The inside is simple and quiet. However, it is closed between 12 - 3 pm, which we were not aware of and had to return after. Would be great if timings were provided online!

Located in white town, the exterior of this cathedral is captivating. The massive façade in white and gold shining bright under the sun is a fascinating sight. Churches/Cathedrals are mostly closed from 12 noon to 3 or 4 p.m., and to add to it, afternoons in Pondicherry are not tourist-friendly, so it’s best to avoid the afternoons for travelling around. The inside of the cathedral is a quiet and soothing place; it is indeed pleasant to sit here for 5-10 minutes. We went around 9:30 a.m. on a weekday and it was virtually empty with hardly 5-6 people there. A place not to miss in Pondicherry.

A nice piece of architecture lost its charm because of some idiots rennovation. Just a one time visit

Just like the Basilica that you find about a KM away from this cathedral - this place is also one where it takes you back in time and a peaceful environment. There were surprisingly any people at the church either localities or tourists when we went there at noon.
