Philomena is a nice name, isn’t it? She was a young girl martyred at the age of 14. She was a consecrated virgin and as such had spurned the advances of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. The emperor had her scourged, drowned, shot with arrows… efforts foiled by the work of angles protecting the girl. He finally decapitated her.Her remains were disovered in 1802. The Maharaja of Mysore had the church built in 1933, when he received a relic of the saint from his secretary. The church, which is supposed to be Asia’s second largest, was built in neo-gothic style. It’s floor plan is based on the cross. The elegant twin spires of the church reach 175 feet from the ground.

It is under renovation..... Big and beautiful church in the middle of City. Feeling of peace can be experienced inside the church. Beautiful pictures of Jesus are displayed on the walls. Everybody can come and see the church. An offering place is separately there to make offerings. Location is good. Nice place to visit.
old catholic church. large structure. Really huge structure. good to see. If you skip it nothing to loose. Built in 1933. May be a good center for christians. easily visible & there is a parking lot .
St. Philomena's Church at Mysore is a tourist destination. People come here in great numbers both to pray and admire. Its an architectural marvel comparable to the best anywhere. It is one of tallest in India. It is also a Cathedral, the official church, where the Roman Catholic Bishop of Mysore officiates at liturgical celebrations. It close to other places of attraction in Mysore.
One of the very oldest and beautifully structured Churches I have ever seen or been into in India till now. Nice place to do prayer too. During Christmas time the Church Authorities decorate the Church very nicely.
Beautiful and Serene... the architecture is impressive. Daunting elevation. Spacious from within as well as outside. Street hawkers sell wooden artifacts of inlay work and also hand painted frames, outside the premises. Can be easily spotted from normal traffic conditions. Located in the heart of city. Must visit when in Mysuru.
