This is a beautiful Gothic structure with beautiful stained glass windows and lofty towers is a must-see.  Roman Catholic Church was built in A. D 1840.  It was initially known as St. Joseph Chaver which later assumed the present name.  The twin towers of the Church stand majestically at 175 feet, the design is gothic and it is said to resemble the St. Patrick's Cathedral at New York and a church at Cologne.  The church is located about
1 Km from Mysore Palace on the Bangalore highway.  The then king of Mysore Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV laid the foundation for construction of the church in 1933.  The stained glass windows, made in France, over looking the apse, showing the birth of Christ, Baptism of Christ by St. John the Baptist, the last supper and the crucifixion of Christ are works of art.  The altar bears the statute of St. Philomena a 3rd Century saint from Greece.
 

This church is considered to be the most beautiful in Karnataka.  This church has a cellar where there is a statue of St. Philomina was a holy saint during the  3rd century in Greece, in a reclining posture.  A piece of her bone and clothes are also in this church.

A beautiful Cathedral, reminiscent of medieval architectural style. Stained glass windows and lofty towers make it an imposing structure.  Designed by French architects.
