St. Mary's Basilica

St. Mary's Basilica, one of the oldest churches in Bangalore, is situated opposite the Russel Market Square in Shivajinagar. Originally it was a small chapel built by the French missionary, Abbe Dubois in 1818 and was called 'Kaanike Mathe Devaalaya' (Our Lady of Presentation). The church's present ornate Gothic style structure was built in 1882 by Rev. L.E.Kleiner and the Blessed Mother Mary enshrined here was called 'Arogya Mathe' (Our Lady of good health). The interior of the church is splendid with decorated stained-glass windows from Europe, multiple columns with rich Corinthian capital supporting stately arches. The church was elevated to the status of a Basilica in 1973. Every year on September 8th, crowds clad in saffron clothes gather here to celebrate the feast of the Virgin Mary. As a part of the feast, an annual car procession is also held here.
