St. Francis Xavier Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral. It is located close to the Ulsoor Lake. The most attractive feature is the large central dome. The massive prayer hall is the major attraction. This is renowned for the beauty of the building.

This is a old cathedral built around 1930. It is the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Bangalore. It is very big and architecturally beautiful. It is very peaceful and usually not crowded.

It's a big cathedral that looks old, though it might be just the design. When I visited, it was almost empty. I loved looking at beautiful paintings and statues of saints. It was also lovely to meditate inside. It's a good spot to visit and...More
