St Thomas Cathedral, Mumbai

Published date: 22/03/2024
  • Location: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
First built in 1718, this is one of the largest churches in Mumbai. It might not look much from outside, but its altar surely is an emanation of the grandeur Gothic architecture is known for. Its stained-glass windows, brick red floor tiles with geometric patterns, stucco work on walls and high ribbed-vaulted ceiling draw your attention at once. Also worth seeing here is a memorial to Reverend Thomas Carr, who served as the first bishop of Mumbai. Did you know that this it was this building which gave the Churchgate station its name? So, when you come here, you are not only visiting a place of worship, but also walking through the heritage of Mumbai.
