A trip to Shillong is incomplete without visiting this magnificent church. The compound is beautifully maintained and the cathedral hall contains paintings and carvings.

This cathedral is the primary place of worship of the strong catholic community of Shillong. It has imprints of gothic architecture and is a picturesque spot in midst of Khasi hills.
