About Don Bosco Shrine, Cherrapunji
Located in Cherrapunji, the Don Bosco Church is dedicated to the saint Don Bosco. This shrine is a famous attraction as it houses the relic of the Don Bosco saint. The work of constructing the shrine began two years after the canonization of Don Bosco. There were various reasons for which the work of this shrine was stopped. Difficulties of transportation, climate and finally World War II made the progress very slow. The building of the Shrine, which is 150 m. in length and 50 m. in breadth, was completed only in 1952. Since 1952 numerous pilgrims have visited the Shrine of Don Bosco every year.
