St Peter’s Church, Mumbai

Published date: 22/03/2024
  • Location: Hill Road, Bandra West, Mumbai, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Though dating back to just the 19th century, its architecture is reminiscent of an artistic movement prevalent much earlier, the Romanesque style, something you’d find in a place like Pisa. A statue of Christ the Redeemer in the front welcomes you to a building decorated with arches and glass paintings. Its resplendent Gothic altar is flanked by angels sculpted from marble. In all, the church is rather airy with a rounded ceiling and detailed floral motifs on the wall. You can even sit under trees as the church is enveloped in immense greenery, providing some much-needed relaxation in Mumbai’s hot and humid weather.
