It is a beautiful church. The altar is a miniature replica of St Peter Basilica's altar. It is an awesome spiritual experience. Praying there soothes one's soul and helps one achieve a meditative state of mind elevating oneself closer to God. Who needs yoga. Praying is the ultimate form of meditation. 😍🙏
Fantastic church. It is very big and sumptuous. You can visit this church for free. There are 13 very nice and detailed sculptures just over the entrance gate which represents Jesus and 12 Apostles. They recommend you to walk only right and left corridors not the middle one as people come here to pray. So you wont disturb them.
