Gloria Church, Mumbai

Published date: 22/03/2024
  • Location: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Also called Our Lady of Glory Church, Gloria Church was initially constructed by the Franciscans, who had come from Portugal, in a style reminiscent of their land. But, this church in Mumbai was later rebuilt as the Victorian Gothic building you see today. Even if you don’t know where exactly it is, don’t worry as its high towers can be seen from quite a distance. The first thing you see when you come here is a marble statue of Jesus, inviting you inside with open arms. If you have by any chance seen Amar Akbar Anthony or Rockstar, you would instantly recognise this church. Its interiors are mostly white, with statues of saints atop pillars and colourful stained-glass windows adding to its visual appeal.

Location: Sant Savata Mali Marg, Byculla East, Mumbai
