Built on the same spot, which witnessed the first church in Shillong, this historical monument of peace and divinity is almost 50 years old. The beautiful church is constructed in the Gothic architectural style and is a spectacular sight in the midst of sprawling green lawns. This church is also known as the Cathedral of Mary Help of Christians. The most unique feature of this church is the fact that it is built on sand and not on rock. As the region is prone to earthquakes, this ensures that any earthquake-related shock is absorbed by the sand, thereby securing the church from any major damage.

Situated on top of an emerald-colored hill, the tall arches of the church and its stained glass installations will mesmerize any tourist visiting Shillong. Near the altar of this church is the grave of the First Archbishop of the city. Apart from all these, the church also has several pieces of artwork depicting various scenes and chapters from Holy Scriptures.
