St. Joseph’s Cathedral was built during 1869 by Fr. Antonio Tagliabue PIME and was declared a diocese in 1886 by Pope Leo XIII. The bell towers were completed in 1891 and the bells were added in the following year. The whole church is built in true Italian design and is embellished by timeless pieces of art.

The spectacular 6-foot granite wainscot, the stunning art work including the carved marble side altars and the marble statues of Mary and St Anthony, add to the beauty of the Cathedral. The European oil painting of Mother Mary and Jesus as a child, is an antique and was donated by one of the Nizams. The imitation of the famous sculpture ‘Pietà’ by Michelangelo and the vintage set of the Stations of the Cross, are something that takes the spotlight immediately and are another of the highlights of the place. Visit the church to see a part of Hyderabad’s most vivid iconic art pieces and to find a calm oasis in the city.

  • Church is beautiful no doubt but parking is a major issue. Best visited when schools are closed as a school's gate is towards the church. Lots of other vehicles are parked because of it.

  • One of the oldest cathedrals in India. The church is beautifully designed. The Sunday evening mass is from 6 pm. The Christmas feast here is amazing with thousands of people gathering to celebrate. Easter celebration is equally good.

  • I'm one if the Ace Academy student which is beside this church When ever I feel solitary I go this church I'll be there for few minutes watching the school kids playing (school beside the church), birds chirping, and devotees offering their prayers then I feel to ecstatic and refresh then I'll be back to my work.
