Mount Mary church


The Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount, more commonly known as Mount Mary Church, is a Roman Catholic Basilica located inBandraMumbai.
Although the current church edifice is just 100 years old, the history behind the current statue of Our Lady goes back to the 16th century when Jesuit priests from Portugal brought the statue to the current location and constructed a chapel.

  3. It looks majestic. Just the other day I was telling the kids the story of Vasco Da Gama and how the Portugese came to India. Must show them this church. Thanks for sharing Deepak.
