While most churches in Mumbai have European ties, this one is Asian in its origin. It was originally constructed by an Armenian woman in 1787 as a small chapel, on the foundations of which a proper church was erected in 1881. The church is simple in decoration, yet grand in appearance. Resplendent in white, its marble interiors are accentuated with by miniature statues atop pillars crowned by richly decorated Gothic niches as well as by stained-glass windows. Above the altar hangs a sculpture depicting the Crucifixion, flanked by smaller statues on either side.
